Re: [PATCH] part of issue #897: errors could be better.

To follow up on my own mail: The error message only eliminates the first
line in the example below if there is a specific message to print. You will get
the general error when there is no specific one.

After applying the patch you get the output:

svn: Can't find file 'foo'

which both Greg Hudson and I find as informative as the first example, yet
looking far cleaner.

If there were an error without a specific message, like this one:

svn: Tried an operation for versioned resources on an unversioned one

The reported error would be the same before and after this patch.
