I don't think this should get an svn subcommand. We need to keep our
command set small in order to keep our learning curve shallow, and
having a lot of neat utilities stashed inside the svn command isn't
consistent with that goal.

Maybe we could shoehorn this function into "svn info", but I don't know
if that can be done cleanly.

(I realize that shipping a lot of separate commands in order to get the
neat utilities isn't great either. Probably we shouldn't have shipped
svnversion farther than the contrib directory.)
