svnversion shows working copy status, the trail URL is simply a way of
determining what should be considered an unswitched URL. The trail
URL doesn't have to be the trunk URL, it could be a branch URL, it's
simply the URL that svnversion will consider unswitched.

Suppose one was monitoring the status of a fictional release-1.0
branch, then

   $ svnversion . branches/release-1.0

tells me it's a pristine working copy based on the branch.

The trail URL is optional, if you don't supply it svnversion will not
check whether the working copy root is switched, although it will
still detect switches within the working copy.
