svn 1.1 UI regression bug?

Hi there,

I have been using Subversion 1.1 for about 3 weeks now, and on the whole
I've had no surprises. I accidently commited a symlink to a repository,
which despite not being what I had intended to do, turned out rather
useful anyway. Ok, so on to my little niggle:

I have a set of working copies stored in ~/www/, a subset of which I
like to have updated daily by cron. My cron script started failing with 1.1:

    svn: '/home/dw/www' is not a working copy

The command-line for this looked like:

    svn up /home/dw/www/site-a /home/dw/www/site-b /home/dw/www/site-c

With 1.0, svn would treat these as individual working copies and update
correctly as expected, but with 1.1 it appears that svn is trying to
optimise the request by finding a common root, and failing to do so.

I would imagine the old (and in my case preferred) svn 1.0 interface
behaviour should be easy enough to emulate in 1.1. The only question is,
is this actually a bug? I personally don't see how it can't be classed
as a UI regression bug.

Thoughts? Please CC: me directly as my -users mailbox isn't read very
often. :)
