Here, here. Building the higher level work flows will be a lot easier
when these problems with tags/branches are fixed. Hopefully the
planned improvements to merge will help here so long as in solving
that problem the key info is easy extractable for use in other tools.

In addition the high cost of operating the SVN API to do many of the
operations that GUI's and other higher level CM tools use needs to
be addressed. I'm waiting on being able to get info on all items in a
single directory in one call. The so called depth API instead
of recursive API.
