Feature Request: more svn info

The information fed back by svn info is very useful for use in scripts.

(1) Single info replies

I would really like to be able to have svn info be capable of replying with just a single piece of information. I'm not sure what the syntax should be, but perhaps something like

        svn info . --just "Revision"

This would be very useful in, for example, simple bash scripts, or even just on the command line, within `back-ticks`.

I suppose this could be done in, for example, a Python wrapper script or bash function, but it would be better if svn could do this directly.

(2) URL and Path fragments

When writing svn or svnlook-based scripts, I have often had to hard code information about where the location of the repository ends and the path within the repository begins.

[And perhaps there is a simple method that I have overlooked.]

Thus some mechanism for splitting such paths would be useful. For example, options such as:
and perhaps also

The minimum, I suppose, would be a method of obtaining the URL to the repository (from svn info) or the path to the repository (from svnlook info).
