Most of our other commands have explicitly provided targets, so adding a
changelist to those targets is a simple modification to the previous command
issued at the prompt.

For some commands, the targets aren't all explicit, but the resulting set is
trivial to reproduce with 'svn changelist' anyway. For example, you could
run 'svn propset -R svn:eol-style=native', which will only touch files, but
then 'svn changelist -R' will likewise touch those same files.

'svn merge' comes to mind as one that, like patch, does not always have
explicitly named targets.

It might be convenient for users if we supplied a sort of
"add-affected-items-to-this-changelist" option to all of our
schedule-a-working-copy-change types of subcommands.
