This is intentional. 'svnlook pget' never adds an extra newline
(because it aims to print raw property values). 'svn pget'
adds an extra newline to the output just in case there isn't one at
all, because it is aimed at human consumption.

What bugs me is that I *thought* the --strict flag to 'svn pget' would
make it behave in the same manner as 'svnlook pget', but that doesn't
appear to be the case.
