This would partly work for commits and adds. I'm saying partly here
because if you e.g. rename a folder, 'svn st -v' won't show you the
files inside the added folder but they're still added. So just counting
those entries won't work reliably.

But please, ask for this feature on the subversion mailing list. I don't
know how many times I've already told this here: I can't do anything
about this! It must be implemented in the Subversion library. So stop
complaining here but complain on the Subversion mailing list. I already
did that several times, but if I'm the only one, nobody there is
pressured to actually do something about this.
