Well, my only argument against a script is that of user friendlyness.
Firstly, the user must find the script on the net and download and
install it. Secondly, the user must download and install perl (if not
already installed). Using the script is done differently than when
normally interacting with subversion. For instance, I assume no help
is shown when doing a svn help clean.
