      Description

      Currently,  'svn status' is done like so:
      
      1.  Crawl the working copy, building a massive hash of status
      structures (interesting ones only, unless -v is passed, in which case,
      one structure per path in the working copy).
      
      2.  If -u was passed ask the server to send you update information,
      which is then laid atop the existing hash of status items (possibly
      adding even more items to that hash).
      
      3.  Pass that hash back to the caller.
      
      4.  Caller sorts the hash keys, and flies over the hash doing the
      printing.
      
      This is, shall we say, inefficient.  You should *see* how terrible the
      performance is with, say, a Windows GUI.
      
      'svn status' should be doing a single pass (combined working copy +
      update info), and using the notification system to streamily hand back
      status info to the client.
