Yea , we do have that setting set. Make would be a great option - and I am
familiar with its generic capabilities to transform 'inputs' into 'outputs'
etc etc, but, there is that time stamp wrinkle. Really the time stamp
should be meaningless - but - we have other mechanisms which consider that
lmod time relevant.

So - what about my thinking that the hooks might have some kind of 'access
to the output from the SVN command' enhancement? ideally they would access
the XML output -- but -- then what am I suggesting? That the internal SVN
calls generate XML which is converted into human-readable language for the
GUI Dialog? Seems pretty far fetched that such a request would be popular?
