Getting the changes to the WC

Hi, I'm having trouble with the following use case, your insight is
appreciated.

A user's made a series of changes to his working copy, which include
creating some files (they're unversioned), and deleting others (they're
missing).

Another user of the same repo needs to make the same changes.

The natural thing would be to copy the working copy from one machine to
another. But shouldn't it be possible to avoid the bulk of that transfer?

It looks like the thing to do is to write a script that collects `svn info`
and walks the list, copying whole files or creating diffs as it goes. `svn
diff` looks like it might almost do this but reading it's output seems
difficult, and doesn't tackle unversioned files.

Looking at all the different status codes that svn status can return, it
looks like a bit of an undertaking.

Maybe someone's already made this tool?

Thanks in advance.
Dave
