We already have completion on svn subcommands:

$ cat ~/.bash_profile | grep svn
if [ -f ~/projects/svn/tools/client-side/bash_completion ]; then
  source ~/projects/svn/tools/client-side/bash_completion

But to do URL completion, your shell would have to be running 'svn ls
URL' under the hood, doing a network request every time you hit tab! I
guess that would be pretty neat, if a bit slow.
