I have a python script, and probably for the same reason switched to
"svn status --xml" output. It was just a little investment to crank up the
python minidom parser, and you get more readable, backward compatible and
future proof code to access the various bits and pieces. I bet in perl too
xml is easier then trying to make your script keep up with svn versions.
