So, for example, you're saying that issue 1361 ('svn cat file -r BASE
contacts repository') could be rephrased "svn cat file -r BASE does
-r COMMITTED instead"?

Sounds like "forever" is a more flexible notion here than some places:

As for this:

What about suspected working copy horkage? I can recall many
discreditable occasions in my past lives when (had I been using
Subversion at the time) I'd have been very interested in
        svn diff -rCOMMITTED:BASE

P'rhaps a post-1.0 sweep is in order, to make sure that all -r's
support both COMMITTED and BASE (and get them straight, and never
ever support COMMITTEED ;-).
