Re: [PATCH] Add an info command to svnsync

I'm pretty sure at some point we decided it would be a good idea to add some
sort of svnsync break-lock command, even.

To play devil's advocate, why is 'svn proplist -v --revprop -r0 URL'
more convenient than 'svnsync info URL'? Just fewer flags to type?

I have two worries about this:

 * Historically, we've tried to keep the number of subcommands small.
 It takes a *really* strong argument to add a new subcommand.

 * This begins a precedent of 'hiding the implementation details' of
svnsync, and I'm not sure we want that. It's never been our goal to
hide the fact that svnsync tracks work via r0 revprops. In fact, I'd
argue that we *want* users to know how svnsync works, so that they can
modify revprops when necessary (e.g. fixing a stuck sync by removing
an orphaned svn:sync-lock property.)
