Good idea. Feel free to start it. You can probably just stick it in
trunk since it applies to all projects.

On the issue you cited, I think that ideally we would not need to call svn
info at all. I think the issue is that when we call svn status -u, it
does not return all of the info we need. For example, we need to know if
the node is a dir or a file, and ideally we would know the head revision
of each item.

I seem to recall this is a Subversion API limitation. For example,
ideally with the CLI svn log --xml would also indicate the node kind. I
think there is an open issue for this but it requires a 2.0 type change. I
could be wrong though.

In this case, perhaps JavaHL could provide an alternate API we could use
that would do svn status and then run svn info on the results. Giving it
to us in one command. Then JavaHL could use the better API when it was
