It's for people writing tools that work with 1.6. I would say it doesn't
need to be available with the 1.6 release: it can be developed at
leisure and released after 1.6 is out there.

We haven't discussed whether this tool should be a sibling of "svn" and
"svnadmin" and "svnlook"; it could be in the "tools/client-side"
collection instead, or it need not be included in Subversion's source
tree at all. I only made it a sibling because that was the easiest way
for me to get started.

In its present form I would not want it to be an official sibling
because it is functionally a "command-line binding" for an API rather
than a user-interface.
