patch to improve svn status parsing speed

When operating on svn repository meld uses "svn status -v --xml" to get items status. For huge repositories parsing of it's output is quite slow in current meld. 

See speed comparison and exact details in commit message inside attached patch.

I was just checking out a few migrated issues and ran across this... and I've lost all context for it.

Is this still a good idea? I know that the Python 3 migration changed some stuff, and using the expat API is IMO a lot more complex than the elementtree one... but if the speed-up is significant I'm perfectly willing to check it out.

Also, should probably continue this discussion at, but I can't see any way to subscribe someone to an issue on there, so if you'd like to subscribe over there then all good.
