 From my isolated perch in Windowsland, I wouldn't be surprised if
quite a significant number of users were using svn from the command
line, and writing .bat files for the purpose. Really, I have no idea
what the number might be.

Looking along the top row of my keyboard, I wonder whether "+" or "="
might be reasonable alternatives to "^". In *nix, they're all about
equally metacharacterish.
