I propose add to 'svn help' command more help like 'cvs --help-commands'
does. Here is cvs help output example:

         add Add a new file/directory to the repository
         admin Administration front end for rcs
         annotate Show last revision where each line was modified
         checkout Checkout sources for editing
         commit Check files into the repository
         diff Show differences between revisions
         edit Get ready to edit a watched file
         editors See who is editing a watched file
         export Export sources from CVS, similar to checkout
         history Show repository access history
         import Import sources into CVS, using vendor branches
         init Create a CVS repository if it doesn't exist
         log Print out history information for files
         login Prompt for password for authenticating server
         logout Removes entry in .cvspass for remote repository
         pserver Password server mode
         rannotate Show last revision where each line of module was
         rdiff Create 'patch' format diffs between releases
         release Indicate that a Module is no longer in use
         remove Remove an entry from the repository
         rlog Print out history information for a module
         rtag Add a symbolic tag to a module
         server Server mode
         status Display status information on checked out files
         tag Add a symbolic tag to checked out version of files
         unedit Undo an edit command
         update Bring work tree in sync with repository
         version Show current CVS version(s)
         watch Set watches
         watchers See who is watching a file

those very short explantations what the command do should be very
helpful. Especially when user looking for a specific subcommand and
don't know his name. At the present 'svn help' prints only list of
available subcommands.
