Well, one of the things we don't like about CVS is that "cvs -l update"
and "cvs update -l" do two different things, for example. We want
options to have the same meaning no matter where they appear in the

But if, say, the -l option takes an argument in the "svn co" command and
doesn't take an argument in the "svn ls" command, then you can't be sure

  svn -l ls co


So, we have one set of options. Anything terribly complicated is
usually a long option anyway.
