svn status continue on error feature

I'm relatively new to svn - but think it is great.
Right now, I'm writing some wrapper scripts, to help users use svn in a way they are more familiar with.
Originally I used to have multiple calls to svn status for each file passed to the script, which worked fine but was slow, as the repository may be remote.
I then tried the method of calling svn status file1 file2 file3 etc.
However, if any of the files are not in the repository, svn will error out, and then stop. I would like it to continue to produce a single line of status for each file - i.e. continue on error.
Because of this "feature" I am unable to use svn status with multiple files. Any workarounds or info is greatly appreciated!
