I went to test and apply this patch just now, but there are actually
three patches buried at different levels of quoting indentation in
your message. Please somehow clearly mark exactly what patch & log
message is the one you want applied :-). Otherwise the applier has to
spend a lot of time figuring out which is the correct one.

For example, at first I thought it would be the patch with the fewest
levels of quoting (i.e., the one with a single ">" along the left).
But when I looked more closely, I saw that there was a patch in the
">>" level that was made against a higher revision than the one at the
">" level! In other words:

>> Index: subversion/tests/cmdline/basic_tests.py
>> ===================================================================
>> --- subversion/tests/cmdline/basic_tests.py (revision 18285)

versus

r18285 is higher than r18117, even though the latter appears at the
"more recent" level of quoting. That's rather unexpected, and makes
me not trust myself to figure out which patch should be applied.
Could you please repost with exactly one patch, the latest one?

In general, I think it's sometimes useful to re-read one's own post
before sending it. If you read over your original post

from the point of view of someone not already familiar with the
contents, you can see how hard it is to tell what patch is what in
there.
