I don't think svn_load_dirs.pl will be particularly applicable to
your case. That's for loading a whole set of new sources from a
separate unversioned directory into your repository.

You're saying you're modifying the working copy on the server,
possibly adding, removing, renaming or changing files, and want
Subversion to detect this after the fact. This is what the FAQ says
you're not supposed to do, and because you're not supposed to do it,
Subversion doesn't provide you with a way to do it.
