svn ls - could it list non repo directories?

I was wondering if it would be useful for "svn ls" to list non-repository directories. I know this functionality doesn't exist, but I am wondering if it would be considered useful (I know I would like it).

My company is just starting to use version control and we have a lot of small projects for companies. Because we do a lot of projects specifically for the company we have group the projects by company in the file structure:

   +- comp1
   | |
   | +- proj1
   | |
   | +- proj2
   +- comp2
       +- proj1
       +- proj2

We have pointed svnserve at "repodir", but put repositories at the project level. That means it can turn into a guessing game as to what the company or project directory is called.

What I would like to be able to do is something like:

  $> svn ls svn://server
  $> svn ls svn://server/comp2
  $> svn ls svn://server/comp2/proj1

I'm not sure if this would have to do with svn or svnserve, or if it would even be desirable for most people. But I figured I would throw it out there and see what people think.

If you think this is more a problem of poor repo layout, let me know. I am spearheading this move *and* am learning as I go. Sometimes a difficult position to be in.

I have searched both the issues and the mailing list, but didn't see anything about this. I must admit though... I'm not very good at picking the right search words/phrases.
