Heh. This is one of the things I looked into, back before I was
formally involved with the project... (as patch manager and later
a committer)

But I never sent in a patch for this, because I reckoned that a patch
that just adds a --quiet option everywhere (and uses it just for
--version --quiet) would serve more as a 'practice for Daniel in sending
patches' and less as 'a patch that Subversion needs'. So I looked
for more 'real' patches (eg, copy_tests 48) to work on.

Not to say that this patch is unnecessary (maybe you have a usecase
wherein it's required), but if you're looking to cut your teeth, I can
suggest a few more challening things to work on. :-)
