There are some potentially strange race conditions with the
--non-interactive stuff, since that flag turns out to be global, not
per-process. There's also some weirdness in regard to what happens
when you're using svn via an ssh session without the GUI, but I forget
the details. Look for messages by Dan Rall and Fred Sanchez around
the time this came out, I can't recall the subjects off the top of my
head.
