That intuitively tells me 'copy', not 'rename', the clist.

Also it strikes me that changelists have sub-commands which really
would be best expressed as actual sub-commands rather than options to
the one command:

  svn clist add mynewcl file1 file2 file3 dir1
  svn clist add mynewcl --clist myoldcl
  svn clist remove mynewcl file2
  svn clist clear mynewcl # or svn clist remove --clear?

With three distinct verbs, it seems odd to have one be the 'default
action' and the other two only happen if you _modify_ the default
action with an option.

cl and clist both seem reasonable. Or have changelist with cl as an
alias, much like propset -> ps.
