I don't think that's a valid reason not to use < or &. The output
of "svn st" makes absolutely no pretense at being XML, and thus
shouldn't be interpreted, or be subject to the constraints of such.

And if you've got something that *is* going to put that output into
XML format for some reason, well it jolly well should be escaping them!
