Interesting, but I'd disagree. My personal taste is that the svn client should
remain as simple as possible/useful. One reason is that it pins others to
_your_ prj/branch/tag style of doing things.

However, consider a SVN shell like this:

repo = ""
while read cmd args; do
  case cmd in
      # change dir
      cd args
      # checkout
      svn co repo$args
      # checkin
      svn ci repo$args
      # set repository URL
      repo = args

I used something like that for Debian's apt-get/apt-cache and found it quite
useful. Also, it extends without intruding into existing programs, which is a
Good Thing(tm).
