That's the CVS way of doing things, and you immediately end up with extremely
confused users (me). You also end up with identical options that mean
different things based on whether they come before or after the subcommand.
The whole point is that Subversion is not willing to do that. Subversion is
building a better CVS, and context-sensitive arguments are a major
shortfalling which it wants to remedy.

Having to remember to put the "-l" after the "ls" is a major problem, no
matter how insignificant or "I-have-no-problem-with-it" it might seem.
