Bravo for the tool, it looks really useful! The name is going to be a
source of confusion, though. If you doubt me, just watch this list
for a while and see how often people write "SubVersion" instead of
"Subversion" -- it happens all the time. People are not careful about
capitalization; this is a fact that cannot be wished away.

Some possibilities for a different name:


Please consider switching? It would be a shame for every mention of
your tool to need to be followed by a warning that it's not related to
as the command-line 'svnadmin' program. That would only distract
people from more important things, like your tool's functionality.
