Ok. Make sense.

Well, "revisions" looks ok to me, but I'm not a native speaker.
Moreover, there is already a --revision option.

I guess it is possible to provide a better solution, but to let
"svn version" anyway as an alias as people are used to it.

What about: rev[ision]-?stat[us], vers?[ion]-?stat[us]...

Ok. I will submit again something along these lines...
