Is that a valid excuse? You guys enhance and fix problems in APR all the
time, why not Neon? This is a legitimate feature that would also improve
the command line client.

Also, Neon does at least have API to say the bytes transferred and it was
the TSVN guys that enhanced SVN to support this in the API. None of the
SVN developers have stepped up to add equivalent support to the svn:// and
file:// protocols which are completely in your control.

I wouldn't have even posted to this thread, but I did not really like the
finger-pointing. Yes, the libraries you use do not have support for this
feature currently, but if users do not repeatedly ask you for it, then how
are you ever going to know people want it?
