I don't think that the current behavior — entirely losing error information —
is expected. For example, here is what "svnadmin help verify" says about -q:

    -q [--quiet] : no progress (only errors to stderr)

Fine, but I suspect that this fix probably isn't going to address the very last
problem in the --keep-going code. It would be a pity to delay Subversion
1.9.0 because of that.
