Hmmm, in that case I understand even less why this feature should be
part of the regular svn binary. The point is that if we put "svn
upgrade" in, we have to maintain it indefinitely in the 1.x version set,
or at the very least until we release 1.9 and drop support for 1.7; and
we have to retain any special functionality that the feature relies on.

So I ask again, why not make this a separate program?
