Yes, someone else suggested the same thing the next day.

I didn't like the find with grep either, but (since I had forgotten the
'-o -type f -print' bit) using just -prune resulted in printing all the
.svn folders, not all *but* the .svn folders. I was in a hurry, so I
didn't have time to experiment much further :)

The man page I've got on find wasn't particularly forthcoming either,
and didn't explain how -prune interacts with the other options.
