Note that svnlook and svnadmin will be combined at some point. (hmm; I don't
see an issue; am I missing it?)

But also: many of the operations that svnadmin can perform today *could* be
performed remotely through WebDAV. Through various combinations of PROPFIND
and reports to query information, using DELETE to toss old transactions, or
PROPPATCH to update a log comment.

One day...
