Yeah, ambiguity: gotta love it! ...maybe.

Not possible with 'svnlook' or 'svnadmin'. They are tools that
*directly* link with the filesystem (libsvn_fs), and thus directly use
Berkeley DB. They're meant for examining/tweaking local repositories
only. 'svnadmin' allows an administrator to tweak a log message, or
remove a dead transaction. 'svnlook' is what gets run by the
post-commit hook, so a commit-mail will have real contents.

If you want to 'look' at remote server, try pointing your web browser
at the repository URL. :-) :-)

Quick! Get that license plate number!
