Why not show the SVN revision number on the svn --version display? I have no
way of knowing what build of Subversion I'm using unless I put it in a
directory based on the revision, or just try to remember what it was. I've
given it some thought of adding this feature myself, but I thought there
might be a reason it hasn't been done yet, so I wanted to ask ahead of time.

The only downside to this would be if the whole svn wc tree wasn't updated to
the same revision, the number wouldn't indicate the true version, but
otherwise it would. Better than nothing perhaps?

I'm thinking of something like:

Subversion Client, version 0.14.2-r3133 (dev build)
