True. This reflects what feels like an odd overload to me. It would
seem more natural to me to have svn commands act on working directories
(always), and reserve all direct repo actions for svnadmin (for that
well deserved extra dose of respect). That seems more intuitive to me
than having some commands have "direct commit" semantics. But that's
probably not going to be considered at this point in the game.
