svn status -N processes all files in the directory

I noticed that even with -N switch, the svn status command
will still process all files in a directory.

The book says:

> If you pass a specific path to svn status, it gives you information about
> that item alone:
> $ svn status stuff/fish.c
> D stuff/fish.c

However it does not work this way for directories, not even with the -N switch:

svn status -vN ulp/
              653 479 roland ulp
              653 476 roland ulp/dapl
              653 346 roland ulp/Kconfig
              653 110 roland ulp/Makefile.24
              653 476 roland ulp/ipoib
              653 29 roland ulp/Makefile.26
              653 432 roland ulp/sdp
              653 479 roland ulp/srp-24
              653 479 roland ulp/srp-26
              653 346 roland ulp/Config.in

In other words subversion always applies the status command
to all files in a directory, in addition to the directory itself.

I suspect this applies to other commands, but the behaviour
does not seem to be documented. Could someone enlighten me?

This is consistent with cvs -l switch, but
1. cvs does not version directories so its different for subversion
2. how *do* I apply a command just to the directory itself?
