The completion functionality seems more tightly tied to the Subversion
version than to the zsh version. If that is the case, why not just
distribute it in contrib, as you do with the bash completion

Barring that, I'd say send a patch for case-insensitive 'ARG' to zsh
regardless of whether 1.5 will release with this change, as it _is_ a
correct change and ought to be in 1.6 if not 1.5.

Anyway, I don't like the idea of reverting a consistency fix in the
help text simply because someone is trying to _parse_ it. Indeed,
parsing the help text seems almost absurd too - though I do understand
the reason for it in this case. svn --help --xml? (:
