Hi, Thanks Blair. Glad to see there is *a* wiki.

I just checked and it is the most authoritative, doing well on Google at #9
on http://www.google.ca/search?num=100q=subversion+wiki and #4 on
http://www.google.ca/search?q=svn+wiki ... funnily enough I didn't search
that way. I was navigating...

As I would like it's content to be considered *the* wiki I just added it to
the /topic on #svn on irc.freenode.net: that will give it some airing.
Ideally it would need to feature on navigation from tigris.org: so who do we
lobby to make that happen? Is there any factor (such as the name) that
would make it more obvious to users what it is about?

As for svn_load_dirs.pl, it certainly does a good job as far as it goes. I'd
just like it to go further, and in particular with respect to how it handles
