Off the top of my head, I can see two:
 - you cannot deal with binary changes this way
  - it's svn-centric: 'svn' is the client that comes with subversion,
there's no reason someone using another client - GUI or not - be faced
with svn specific commands.

(BTW, I'm using 'svn' client exclusively :-)

Cheers,
Charles
