I haven't updated to 1.1 yet, but one operation where svn is *much*
slower in 1.07 is "svn blame" (corresponding to "cvs annotate"). On a
project that's sitting at revision 32000 or so, it just isn't worth
waiting for that to complete: I suspect it's doing a linear search
through all the revisions.

I've seen somewhere that there were plans to improve this; did it
happen in 1.1?
