I disagree, because people may use ra_local or other access methods
instead of WebDAV, and because I don't think basic functionality should
be delegated to tools other than "svn".

(I'm not saying that everything you can do through WebDAV should be
reimplemented in svn, just that "ls" is basic enough to be in the
category of things which should. And I'm not saying that "svn ls"
should be a 1.0 requirement--mainly since CVS doesn't have it--but I
think it should be an admissable feature.)
