Your example violates our policy about all arguments being 'global',
and being able to appear in any order. Anything which isn't an
argument to a switch (--switch blah) is assumed to be a path or url
target. In other words, our parser sees no difference between

     svn command --changelist foo /some/path
     svn command /some/path --changelist foo

And, in both of these cases, the final target list is [/some/path,
[members of changelist]].
