Depends on where his slowdown is.

If it's because his filesystem requires stat's of each file to get the
filetype, but not to get the names, then yes, that patch is rather easy
to backport (in fact, it was first done against 1.3.x, then i forward
ported it).

If his slowdown is due to something else (reading of properties to look
for svn:special and svn:externals), then he would need the propcaching
stuff that went into 1.4, and you really don't want to try to backport
