Something like this might be handy:

   find . ! ( -path "*/.svn/*" ) -exec sed ... ; -print

as it won't descend into .svn directories.  Or something that just
greps "*.java" extensions since SVN stores its work files as

 find . -name "*.java" -exec sed ... ; -print

These have scaled pretty well for me in big code bases.

Frustratingly, things like 'grep -l "@since" openjpa-*/src | xargs sed ...' don't have quite the intended effect, since that search will find files in the .svn directory. Does anyone know of a clever way to work around this (other than tossing a 'grep -v .svn' into the middle)? I've screwed up my
.svn files twice so far....
