svn version subcommand

In r10430, brane committed a change to implement "svn version" as a
subcommand.

As far as I know, this idea came up in some smoky back room and was
implemented without much discussion. I am close to -1 on it because:

  * I think we need to keep our subcommand count small. If a user
    wants to figure out how to do something, the list of subcommands
    is one of the primary places to look. The longer this list, the
    longer it will take users to find what they want.

  * Subcommands are typically seen as verbs, not as nouns. So people
    might get derailed thinking that there is an svn subcommand to
    "version" a file or directory.
