I have no objection to running it if he does, but I'm curious: why not
just do 'svn status /etc /boot', or even a little script that would
read the list of entries in SVN and report on them? E.g.,
svn status `echo *|sed 's|\<|/|g'`
Unless I misunderstood the author's intent, this will do what he wants
without having to hack '.svn/entries'.
