OK, David, I realize you've given up ;), but it seems we may need one 
more change.  Some of the themes (in themes) have symlinks, so the chown 
ends up erroring with:

chown: changing ownership of 
No such file or directory

or similar.  Simply adding a -h (no dereference) to the chown fixes it, 
but I was afraid to commit that fix as I have no idea now idea how 
portable chown's -h is, and cpsvndir actually works as it is--its output 
is just a bit ugly when symlinks are involved.

So, basically, if anyone happens to know why we shouldn't use -h/where 
it won't work, please let me know.  If I don't hear reasons not to use 
it, I'll commit the attached patch sometime.
