can "svn info" be made more selective?

at the moment, i'm looking at the (gack) 1.4.3 version of svn so
it's quite possible that this exists in a later version, i just can't
tell.

  is it reasonable to suggest that "svn info" be extended to accept
options as to *precisely* which bit of info you want? as in, --url or
--root or --uuid or ... well, you get the idea.

  i ask since we have a build structure which frequently invokes "svn
info", then runs the output through grep and sed to extract some of
those fields. it strikes me that it would just be easier to support
those options, and i can't imagine i'm the first person who ever
wished they existed.

  am i totally out to lunch here? i mean, on *this* issue.
