Oy. Is it really necessary to rip this completely out? I think it's
useful, especially if we, as Ben Reser pointed out, implement

svn version URL

In addition, I saw no consensus on removing it. Aside from Julian and
Branko, I saw no other +1's on ripping it out (Although you surmised
that greg and maxb would). Can't we just:

1. Fix the bug where 'svn version foo' acts like 'svn help foo'
2. Add 'version' to the 'svn help' output

and then later we can implement 'svn version URL' at our leisure.

I'm -0.9 on removing it.
