Justin, as others have pointed out before, this is simply not true. I
can't imagine where you got that idea; scriptability of the command-line
tools has been a goal from day one. Another goal is that Subversion
command-line tools should behave like native apps on all supported
systems; at least on Unix it's natural to expect such tools to interact
nicely with script wrappers.

The fact that some parts of the code already do line-based flushing is
also relevant.

Looking back at this thread, the majority opinion is clearly in support
of this patch. If you want to stop it with the "v"-word, that's your
prerogative. But before you do, please consider that rejecting this
patch for the reasons you supplied would imply that we have to rip out
all existing line-based flushing from the code.

This whole discussion seems to me a bit overblown for such a trivial
(maintenance-wise) and generally useful change.
