RE: Apparent "svn rm" scaling problem in 1.7.x

Not much of an improvement. "svn rm dir/*" now takes 2m6s vs 7s for "svn rm dir".
As a side note, I really think there is fundamentally something wrong of the performance of "svn rm" with large working copies. Here are some example times.
svn rm <file> 7s
I'm assuming that all these commands are doing some form of sqlite database transactions, but the rm transaction, in particular, is very slow. Even when using a local working copy, I am seeing large discrepancies in the time it takes to run "svn rm" vs most other svn commands. It's just since the local working copy is faster overall, you are less likely to notice the large discrepancy in performance.
