Oh, it's not that bad: split on the first ": " and you've got your
set of name/value pairs.

If that's not enough, the --xml switch gives you XML output which you
can parse or transform with XSLT.

The first line of your script can set the locale to anything you
like, for example:

But the repository root is shown, even for working copies. Are you
using the latest version of Subversion, 1.3.1?
