Hello Daniel,

I haven't too much time to think about your patch yet, I was just a bit
surprised about the test failures.
I thought they all pass.
Well, they actually do, at least in my environments.
I've re-tested WinXP and debian/unstable both cmdLine and javahl. All four
test with 0 failures.
Both OSes with svn client 1.2.3

Was there some intentional change in behaviour of cmdline in newer
subversion releases ?
In the 1.2.3 the svn info does print the "(Not a versioned resource)" but it
seems it outputs it to stdout not stderr,
so the cmdLineAdapter feels happy.
