Sorry for self-replying, but I don't want to leave things on a negative note
myself.

Stefan: As I've said before, TortoiseSVN will have what it needs to
function and function well. The code is in a crazy state of flux right now,
though, and we don't want to wind up whipping out un-thought-out APIs to
satisfy your needs *today* that we'll have to live with forever. Please
allow us more time to get past the plumbing stages of the WC-NG transitional
work before asking us to address your needs. We really do want to give you
the information you need; we further want to give it to you in a way that
doesn't bind our hands in the future.

Greg: See above. We've plenty of WC-NG plumbing to deal with before ever
needing to engage the topic of "which of a handful of call and response
paradigms will do the job and make us happiest". Can we defer that decision
until later? Maybe a more mature WC-NG will help us to make better such
decisions.
