I would guess that it's for hysterical raisins. I mean, how many times
have you done this:

$ cvs -d :pserver:foo@bar.com:/cvs login
$ cvs -d :pserver:foo@bar.com:/cvs co qux

Although I don't know that it's entirely a bad idea to just leave it
as a global. Hmm. Does something like this make more sense from a user
interface point of view?

$ svn login -r http://www.foo.com/repos/project
$ svn co -r http://www.foo.com/repos/project qux

I'm not really sure.
