To clarify: we should do what CVS does, where -n and -t are
independent but can be used together. Here's the relevant quote from
CVS's help:

   fermat$ cvs --help-options
       -n Do not execute anything that will change the disk.
       -t Show trace of program execution -- try with -n.

So:

   svn --trace /* Adds the trace editor to the composition. */
   svn --do-nothing /* Subtracts the actual commit editor */
   svn --trace --do-nothing /* Thus, svn shows what it would have
                                 done, but doesn't actually do anything. */

But, let's not make this change now. Let's just revert back to using
the commit editor, so we can tag M2 today, then make the above change
as part of development toward M3. :-)
