It appears that several commands to the command-line binary are
missing help text along the lines of what we have for 'checkout':

$ svn help co
checkout (co): Check out a working copy from a repository.
usage: checkout URL[@REV]... [PATH]

  If specified, REV determines in which revision the URL is first
  looked up.
...

In addition, some of the help text -- for the commands that have it --
is inconsistent. At least in some cases, it is appropriately
inconsistent.

* Mentions peg revs:
  blame, cat, checkout, diff, export, list, merge

* Does not apply:
  add, cleanup, commit, delete, help, import, lock, mkdir, move,
  [propdel, propedit, propget, proplist, propset] (even
  non-revprops?), resolved, revert, status, switch, unlock, update

* Does not mention, but needs to now/future:
  copy, info, log

Does this look like the appropriate set of commands which need peg rev
help text added for them?
