I think it would be good if the manpages were automatically generated
out of the help output from the various subversion commands, perhaps
with some additional introductory information. That way we keep the
quick reference usage information in one place and developers already
keep the usage in the C file up to date. Something like the help2man
perl script. help2man as it is can't handle subversion's usage
syntax, maybe something new in python? :-)
