Announcing release 0.1 of RSVN - a Python script to execute multiple
commands on a repository, without a working copy.

The problem
Copying and moving huge amounts of data is a pita with a working copy.
All paths need to be locked and unlocked on every svn subcommand.

The solution
Execute the commands server-side (or at least, repository-side in this

What can it do ?
rmkdir, rcopy and rdelete (which implies rmove also exists).

What's missing ?
Automated tests (unit and functional)
Commands: redit, rpropset, rpropdel, rmerge, radd, rmove (rcopy + rdelete).
Shell access to the repository: begin, commit, rollback, ls, cd.

Warnings and caveats
This is critical, as this script has received minimal testing. It does
what I need, no more, no less.

Make sure that the target of your copy is named *explicitely*. The
following won't work:
   rmkdir vendor/libcalc/releases
   rcopy vendor/libcalc/0.1 vendor/libcalc/releases

Instead, do the following:
   rmkdir vendor/libcalc/releases
   rcopy vendor/libcalc/0.1 vendor/libcalc/releases/0.1

If you do the former, you will end up replacing releases with a copy of
libcalc/0.1, which is not the intended results.
