A few more points:

The folks on this list are serious *nix folks, but my co-workers tolerate
*nix to get their job done. The majority of them use ONE repository for the
data they produce, and the repository location may change from time to time.
Complicating the command line complicates their life and my job is to keep
the system minimally intrusive for them. (But yes, David, I'm also a user
who likes the CVSROOT feature. I use about four different repositories and
change the definition of CVSROOT with shorthand aliases under tcsh shell.)

The history -T from CVS gives a date-sorted list of tags associated with a
module. It's invaluable when we need to see a history point when a product
went out the door. And we can retrieve its state at that point by the tag
name. (And it can't be easily changed.) I want to do the same thing with
subversion. I don't care to see the directory tree polluted with lots of
names just to have tags at milestones.

The .svnignore file capability would, at the least, ease my job when I
transform my CVS databases to subversion.

And truly, is the command line parsing going to be much more complicated by
these three featues? Is subversion for the developers? Or for the
potential users, too?

Again, I'm happy to try to make the necessary changes, but I'm frustrated
that no one else has seen the utility of them.
