The biggest problem is to *extract* the information from the log info.
It's not just as easy as doing an 'svn ls' or 'svn st -u' to find the
last committed revision: items can have been deleted and don't exist
anymore in HEAD, items can be renamed, moved, ...
So it's not that easy to really find the last committed revision of all
items reliably.
Sure, it can be done, but it requires some time to implement (in a way
that doesn't make the revision graph take 100% CPU for a minute because
it's busy analyzing the data) and will then require even more time
testing. That's why I put
to 1.4 and not 1.3.
