But we do. 'svn' is a wrapper around svn_client/svn_ra. 'svnadmin'
is a wrapper around svn_repos/svn_fs. 'svn' always refers to
repositories via URLs. 'svnadmin' always (I think) refers to
repositories via paths. 'svnadmin' does not have a dependency on Neon
or Serf. I think this distinction is valuable.
