Perhaps we should reconsider whether we want a single command with
subcommands in the first place. Why "svn commit" intead of
"svncommit"? The only real advantage to the former is a cleanliness
issue for aliases (e.g. we'd have to either sacrifice "svnci" as an
alias for "svncommit", or put a symlink svnci -> svncommit; if we go
the symlink route, our contribution to the number of entries in the
binary directory becomes absurd).

In CVS, of course, the main advantage of a single command was code
sharing. But that's what libraries are for, and this project is
definitely big on libraries already.

Well, just a thought. I don't have a strong opinion one way or the
other.
