RE: "svn log -v" vs. "svnlook changed"

Uh - that's kind of funny... If you read the thread, the issue was that
"svnlook changed" returns *better* information than "svn log -v". That
is 1) you can tell if a change was to a property or a file & 2) you can
tell if a given path is a directory or a file. Svnlook tells you that
info "svn log -v" does not.

So clearly changing the name of the executable DOES change things! :)

Why is a schema change required to fix "svn log"? Just doesn't make a
lot of sense that svnlook can return this information correctly and svn
log -v can not - and your condescending dismissal certainly doesn't
clear it up...

That's something which will never happen.
svnlook is a dedicated local repository inspector.

Besides - if a schema change really is required, then simply changing
the name of the executable in which you put the code won't change that.
