A feature request for command line client

I know people are beginning to work on the command line client, so I
hope Im not too late with this request.

Basically I would like svn to behave like ftp (actually more like lftp
or ncftp).

What this means is that if you type just "svn<return>" you get dropped
into an interactive svn shell where you can type a litany of commands.
Preferably this happens without relogging into the server etc.


cavanaug@lajolla ~ 1% svn

svn> status foo.c

  output of command

svn> commit bar.h

  output of command

svn> cd subdir
svn> status README

  output of command

svn> quit

cavanaug@lajolla ~ 2% svn

Personally I think this is a really convenient way to operate
interactively on a directory without having to continually re-run the
svn client.

Plus this is method is a godsend if you want to write scripts that
automate svn. (ie. Perhaps like the cvs2svn or xxx2svn)
