[webkit-dev] webkit-patch now supports subdirectories for SVN checkouts

webkit-patch (at least the upload and land commands) will now default to looking in only the current directory, not the whole SVN tree. This seems to be the behavior preferred by most SVN users. If you want to do the whole tree, you can change to the root. Also, there is a new -d option which lets you explicitly choose a subset of directories like so:

webkit-patch -d Sources/JavaScriptCore -d Sources/JavaScriptGlue

This should make webkit-patch much faster for SVN trees when you didn't change LayoutTests, and it should make it practical to have separate patches in different directories of your tree.

Please let me know if you find any bugs or if you hate the new behavior for some reason.
