Karl,

Are you saying that you don't like the ^ then and we should use
something else?

You linked to a C shell manual page (yuck :) ) I did some checking and
bash only supports the ^ at the beginning of the line.

There was a note that the ^ needs to be protected on Windows, but there,
I image most people use TortoiseSVN or some other GUI, so I', not too
concerned with protecting ^ on the Windows command line. There's also
Cygwin, if people want a shell.
