Re: [RFE] "Updated _from_revision_XYZ_ to revison ABC"

    Yes, but when you work on 6+ machines and 2 OSes it is PITA trying
    to deploy such a solution...

Actually, it might not be so bad. Here's what I'd do:

* Write a wrapper around "svn" that does what you want. Use a modern
  portable language such as Perl, Python, Ruby, etc.

* Check that wrapper in to subversion in a directory like
  svn://server/users/kalin/local/bin

* Ensure that the 6+ machines all have a working copy of
  svn://server/users/kalin/local/bin, and that it's on their PATH
  (perhaps you should have them keep their home directories in
  subversion too; see "svn_homedir" which you cited earlier)

* use your wrapper in preference to svn

    And just a wild idea on how to implement what I need:
    Add a <entry last-rev="XYZ" commited-rev="ABC" ... /> in .svn/entries

That might work, but it seems dangerous to much with subversion's own
internal data structures. I'd keep that information separate.
