+0. It's probably better to say this than not to say it, but it ought to mention (or there ought to be an obvious way to find out) that you can use "svn --version [-q|--quiet]" too. And while we're at it, though perhaps not in the same patch, "svn help" ought not to accept "-q" and silently ignore it, which is what it does at the moment (because of implementation confusion between "svn help" and "svn --version").
