Re: A feature request for command line client

Note that Subversion's server is a DAV server. That means you could use any
(DeltaV-capable) DAV client to interact with the thing(*). Give Joe Orton
enough prodding, and his cadaver tool will satisfy the need listed below.

Hell, you'll be able to use cadaver from Day One to *explore* the "head" of
your SVN repository and to fetch files.

(*) modifying the repository is a completely different story; I'm guessing
that the SVN 1.0 server will be pretty fine-tuned to the SVN client's needs.
But one day, a "cp" in cadaver will do what you expect... create a branch
for further, independent development.

Cheers,
