I checked with property changes, and those show up in the "changed"
output, too. So I took the "dirs-changed" section out.

That would be awesome. Thanks! I mostly was talking about restricting
users to only specific actions (read, write, create, delete).
Regrettably, copy is just a create, and move is a create and delete, so
those two more complicated actions can't be managed independently.
That's why I'm hoping subsequent versions of subversion allow that level
of control.

Cool. I break compatibility (at least with the access type), but pretty
much retained everything else. Thanks again!
