My initial thought/hope was that the client API had the info that was
needed and JavaHL just needed to be revved to pass it back. I thought
that svn st -u -v was showing the revision of the item in the repository.
Sussman pointed out to me on IRC that this is not the case. We are
currently working on a design proposal for revving the client API to
include information about the repository item in the information it
returns. We are just trying to wrap our heads around it right now.

I think you offered at one time to take a look at creating a JavaHL API
for svn info that would take an array of URL's. If this was something
that could be done (where it was not just hiding a series of roundtrips)
then that could be useful as a stop gap until the status API is changed.
Do you know if the client API for info of a URL could take an array of
items?
