The problem is that when a change is made to any file or directory, it actually
modifies all the parent folders all the way to the root folder, so that's why
you're seeing changes on child files and folders. This is at the core
Subversion repository level.

So you're basically asking for is a new ra method to get that information and
then filter it out server side.
