This is not a consensus opinion of the Subversion developers by any
means, and I think it is unfair to judge a particular, small change by
the standards of an architectural position which the group does not
share. (In college, I was a member of a student group which had lots of
stuff piled up in the office. Almost everyone wanted less stuff in the
office, but one particular student felt that we should keep as much as
possible and only get rid of things when we actually needed the space.
No matter how many times he lost the battle over the general principle,
every time anyone brought up getting rid of anything, he would resurrect
the entire debate. What you're doing doesn't rise to that level of
tiresomeness, but it's in the same general category.)

Also, this change is not aimed at complicated layers on top of
Subversion; it is aimed at the simplest of layers, like "tee".
