My 2 cents on this would be that having "svn ls --pattern" and "svn log
--search" which only differ in terms of case sensitivity have a chance of
being confusing for the users.

Perhaps, a slightly better way would be to keep the case-insensitive behavior
by default, but add a "--case-sensitive" switch to handle the cases where
it's required?

That is,

    svn ls --search

    svn ls --search --case-sensitive
