I don't think we promise notifications to stay the same over versions and as
an application developer I prefer a bit more notifications. There are
several other places where we already changed notifications a few times
(merge, tree conflicts, etc. etc.)

+1 from me on just adding the extra notifications.

(I would have a problem if we removed notification calls for specific paths;
but not if they were just filtered in svn's output)
