Does propset really need to take it's value from a file?
Ben, this is mostly directed to you.
Last week, I disabled the ability of propset to take a value from a
file. The current usage of it is:
$ svn propset key value
Now before I dedicate any more of my (limited) brain power to thinking
about how we can best do this (given the current arg parsing
mechanism), let me ask you: Does this function *really* need to get a
property value from a file? I keep thinking that I'm missing
something, but it seems to me that if VALUE is going to be a
relatively short and non-complex char*, providing the ability to read
it from a file is the equivalent of killing a fly with a dumptruck. Is
it OK to just get VALUE from the commandline? If not, can you please
enlighten me? :)
