Don't release 'svn youngest'? [was: --strict vs --no-newline]

Do we really want to release in 1.9 the 'svn youngest' command that was introduced recently?
There are several kinds of 'youngest' rev we might want to ask for, and we already have the following ways of asking for several of them:
† svn info URL | grep 'Revision:'
† svn info URL | grep 'Last Changed Rev:'
† svnversion WC_PATH
† svnversion --committed WC_PATH
while 'svn youngest' only tells us one of them: the youngest rev in the repository.
Can I ask that we use one of these three other UIs instead.
Add a convenient way to get a single field from 'svn info', as has been proposed several times before.
Add an 'svnmucc youngest' subcommand instead, since I understand that the primary motivation was for users of 'svnmucc'.
† svnversion URL
† svnversion -c URL
These correspond pretty closely to the existing WC target variants of 'svnversion', and also provide similar information to the two uses of 'svn info URL'.
(Peg revisions should also be supported and should change the meaning to 'the last revision <= peg rev'. And before anybody points out that 'svnversion' has never been linked to RA code, I pre-emptively ask: so what?)
