I'm questioning the feature as a whole. /bin/sh scripts are perfectly
capable of tolerating a newline for this kind of thing, and I don't see
why svnversion should have this feature when essentially no one else in
the same position does so.

If we do have the feature, -n is a fine option name for it, since the
other meaning ("dry run") doesn't apply to informational commands.
