About the same as "svn mergeinfo"? Or how about a variant on "svn
status" that also looks for that prperty? Frankly, I find this problem
infinitesimally small compared to the ones I mentioned in connection
with the proposal given in this thread.

Indexing based on the presence and/or value of a property is a somewhat
orthogonal feature, IMO, but there's been a lot of interest about that
as well (e.g., what did user X commit? sure, you can filter 'svn log'
but that's kinda slow). If/when it appears, "svn list-branches" could
use it. Until it does, we already more than one command that crawls the
whole working copy or repository tree. This one is no different.
