I think this is too ambiguous, now. Does 'svnversion foo' now mean
WC_PATH == FOO, or TRAIL_URL == FOO?

You might have to either break it into two lines:

    usage: svnversion [OPTIONS]
           svnversion [OPTIONS] WC_PATH [TRAIL_URL]

Or teach the code to use the likes of svn_path_is_url() to determine,
in the 1-argument case, if that one argument was a working copy path
or a URL.

I wish I'd noticed the TRAIL_URL before ... the UI side-effects have
me less excited about this change.
