...but... svn commit doesn't expect a list of one or more targets, either.
It operates on the meta-concept of the "working copy" as a whole (as defined
by the entries file, I think). Another issue is the "atomic unit"-ness of
the directory, so every subdirectory can potentially be treated as a working
unit of its own.

I still think the cleanest approach (at least at the moment) is a wrapper
script like I described before. Of course, I'm going to think that way
since I've already done it. :-/

Couldn't say - not a CVS user.
