We've batted around the idea of allowing regexes in svn:ignore
properties and authz files, but without proper regex support in
Subversion we can't.

While I'm not saying we should add such support now, I am pointing out
that there are more use cases that simply those covered by 'svnlook
--diff-cmd'.
