Shell mode would be great - but if you're going to do it, it should be
much more than what mucc does. It should include a repository browser
(complete with 'cd' and 'tree' style commands) and especially I'd
appreciate if it were capable of being linked to GNU readline, or one
of the readline lookalikes. (readline licensing might affect people's
attitudes - it is GPL, not LGPL like neon.)

That sounds quite nontrivial, introduces an additional library
dependency and all - promoting mucc to first-class svn-mucc would be a
whole lot simpler. OTOH, if you don't want to have to support svn-mucc
forever because shell mode will replace it ... that's a valid choice
too.

I suppose I should mention that I've been pondering adding mucc to the
Debian subversion builds, and calling it svn-mucc or svnmucc in the
process, so I'm delighted that some of you committers are thinking
along the same lines.
