"or just specifying a full URL..."? Ick. Unless you mean to say,
"or, alternatively, specifying a full..." Requiring a URL for an
rdiff would be insufferable. :-)

RE: ``svn: cat file''
I assume you are envisioning some non-SVN commands being supported
in the shell-like flavor of SVN usage. How would such commands
be selected?

  1. If an SVN command, then do that
  2. If findable using $PATH, then do that
  3. else emit, "Say, what??"

It would make it a more complete shell-like environment...
