The request for the --xml option is for "svn list" not "svn status".
Why is it that "svn log" is the only command blessed with the --xml
option?

What's that got to do with anything? Revisioning symlinks only works on
UNIX so it's not like the Subversion developers are not opposed to
platform specific features. You know one easy solution is to provide a
"hook" for an external application to do the authentication. One could
almost support such a thing with the "pre-commit" hook, but what is
really needed is a "pre-read" hook. (FYI, I'm not suggesting this is
the *best* way to do it...)

BTW, such a feature would be very nice for UNIX folks as well. It would
allow them to tie into an LDAP or Kerberos server. This is rather
useful thing for larger organizations - which is why I guess your quick
dismissal raised the hairs on my back a bit... :)

The purpose of "svn status" is to show the modification status of files
on your system, not an in-depth description of each file. Perhaps "svn
info" is more what you're looking for.

That won't happen; those libraries are available only on Windows.
