[PATCH] svn help export is ambiguous

From: Simon Large <simon_at_skirridsystems.co.uk>

Hi folks,

The help output for svn export states:
2. <snip> ...
   If REV is not specified, all local changes will be preserved,
   but files not under version control will not be copied.

This implies that if REV _is_ specified then files not under version
control could be exported, which is of course nonsense. The attached
patch splits the sentence in two.

Simon

  Clarify the help text for the "export" command. Unversioned files
  are never exported, regardless of whether REV is specified.
