[webkit-dev] webkit-patch and SVN

Anders brought to my attention this afternoon that webkit-patch
currently does all SVN operations from the root directory instead of
being current-directory aware.  That behavior matches how Git
operates, but does not need to be how webkit-patch operates.

Question: Do SVN users wish to have webkit-patch be
current-working-directory aware?

"upload" will only prepare-ChangeLog for the current directory and
upload an svn diff under the current directory.
"land" will only land the current subdirectory.

The propose change will make webkit-patch inconsistent between VCS
tools, but consistent with the users choice of SVN vs. Git.  Is this
SVN users desired behavior?
