how to get list of files off-line

I want to get a list of files in (a working copy of a) repository.
Naturally, "svn ls" comes to mind. However, "svn ls" needs network
access to the repository. However, I want a function that also works

Is there a way to get this list of files, without going on-line?

I currently parse .svn/entries, but I rather use a proper API call or
command-line tool.

Out of curiousity, if someone knows why "svn ls" needs network access,
let me know why.

PS: I currently use this in a script to test if all properties are
properly set in a local repository. Users can run this before
committing. It checks for svn:eol-style, svn:mime-type, svn:keywords,
svn:executable, encoding (utf-8, latin-1, ascii, etc.), if UTF-8: with
or without BOM, NFC or NFD coding, etc. etc. If you are interested, a
crude version is freely available from
(it's the file svnpropsCheck.py).
