Huh, I forgot to mention a little thingy... Wildcard is only possible
on some subcommands... Namely commit, add, delete and propset/get/list.

You have to remember that wildcard expansion is not done by subversion
itself, but by the shell. So, the command that subversion receives is
not "svn cp * ../NewProject", but really "svn cp fileA fileZ fileN
../NewProject", and the help for svn cp specifically requires two args,
not twenty.

You'll have to script your way through it, I'm afraid.

Cheers,
Franšois
