Actually, several options already support multiple instances: --with-revprop, --search, ...
Multiple items need not require multiple options anyway:

The output escaping/parsing issues are basically the same as for 'svn list -v' and 'svn status -v'. Here's a flexible possibility, shown by examples:
# similar to 'svn status -v'
# similar to 'svn ls -v'
But, while all that might be nice, the main aim of this feature was to have an easy way to answer questions such as:
'is this a trunk WC or a branch WC?'
$ svn info --show-item=relative-url .
'what is the URL of this working copy's repository?'
$ svn info --show-item=repos-root-url .
'what is the youngest revision in the repository?'
$ svn info --show-item=revision ^/
