The svn commandline client installs a SIGINT handler that sets a flag,
and then constantly checks the flag to see if the user has interrupted.

It works really well, except for a bug in neon. Read about it here:


We hear that this bug is fixed in neon's trunk (yes, neon is using svn
now!), and will be released in neon 0.25. We're trying to encourage
neon 0.25 to come soon, so we can couple it with svn 1.2.
