I was proposing this line as a slight extension of the one currently in
the SF patch. In accordance with Martin I am still unconvinced that
'svn info -R' or more fancy tools are really useful here.
If you meant that the following situation is possible:
trunk$ svn up
At revision xxx.
trunk$ svn info
Last Changed Rev: 10000
trunk$ cd Python
trunk/python$ svn info
Last Changed Rev: 10001
then I object. As far as I can tell this is not possible.
