If svn didn't successfully complete every task I gave it, it
should not exit zero. Note that this may be my fault ;->; I
remember making some of these commands warn and continue many
years ago...

0 ~% ls notexist .zshrc
ls: notexist: No such file or directory
.zshrc
2 ~% ls .zshrc
.zshrc

The '2' in my prompt is the exit code from ls.
