sheesh, who needs tests anyway.

Seriously though, it would be great if the svn power users out there would
model their use case cycles in tests. I've got one on the other line trying,
and he's quite disappointed with the current lack of tests.

The other way would be to try and find every loathsome permutation of
everything and write all of those into tests -- not trivial at all. That
would need a serious sponsor.

So my guess is, if corner-case-hitters would document their workflow in
cmdline tests, we'd have a pretty optimal coverage. It's definitely in the
interest of power-user corner-case-hitters to do so.
