If I patched svnlook+docs to be "svnlook COMMAND REPOS_PATH" instead
(mandatory command instead of default info), would there be a chance
it'd be accepted at this point? I think it's worth changing and better
to change it now than post-1.0. And I think it's better to change
svnlook than svnadmin because:

- svnadmin is probably used much more often, so it'd be less of a shock.
- IMHO, command repos makes more sense than the other way around.
- This way is more consistent with svn also:

It would mean everyone would have to recopy their commit-email.pl script
and probably change other hook scripts.
