That is a cool trick.  I looked at the man page and there's a way to refine 

$ find . -wholename '*/.svn' -prune -o -exec grep "\"edit\"" -l {} \;

The -prune command drops the directory entirely from the search.  find won't 
waste time recursively descending into .svn directories just to ignore every 
file in there.
