It walks over the entire working copy. It enters each directory and
checks for a lock. If present, it then checks for a journal -- one
left behind by an interrupted working-copy process. If there's a
journal present, the commands are executed. Then the journal and
lockfile are removed.

I don't think anyone's asked for this before. You could start by
proposing such a feature to the dev@ list. Just how slow is 'svn
cleanup' on your tree? You said it has several thousand files, but
that's not what matters. What matters is how many subdirectories it

In any case, 'svn cleanup' should be a very rare thing. It only
needs to be run when you interrupt svn commands. Do you find
yourself interrupting svn commands often?
