Thanks for the confirmation. I'll submit my changes to svn_load_dirs
once I've tested them some more. To revert any "mkdir"s that may have
been performed, I've had to do "svn rm --force" on the directories (in
the reverse order to that which they were created). Just in case any
googles for this info :-)
