How'd you get 12 above? Wouldn't there be a space between john and My?
(There is a space in the format string prior to the final %s.)
Truncation of user names will naturally create new ambiguities between,
   "administrator john" and "administrator sally" who will both appear
as "administrato"
Given your other patch, I would think you'd want to just use tab
between user name and file name.
(Not that either of these is necessarily good for Subversion trunk.
Not sure why you aren't exploring the XML output option.)
