parsing of svn CLI by other programs

First time poster, short timelurker.

I know the point of having a library and using
standard protocols is so anyone can easily interface
with the repository ...

.. but there will inenvitably be front ends that rely
on text I/O(I'm sure the emacs front end will) from
the standard svn CLI. Is there a proper place to
store the knowledge of what these messages look like
(comments, resource files)? do you just let the guy
who writes the parser deal with it or do you go out of
your way to format all messages in a parsable (BNF)
way?

I guess this isn't unique to svn, but most projects
I've seen are mature and have already stabilized their
CLI messages. The "svn for cvs users" document
mentioned this in passing, which is what made me bring
it up.
