The problem we had before was people becoming familiar
"!svn/bc/REV/path" after using it in a web browser for a while... and
then they'd go and use the same URL with 'svn cat' and get errors. Then
we'd hear complaints.

Should we just ignore this problem? Is it a non-problem? Or is there
just no acceptable solution to it?
