I'm curious: why should Subversion re-invent or re-implement perfectly
usable tools, simply because you are tired of using the pager
applicable to your environment? Do you file such requests will all of
your frequently used tools, such as gcc?

These are honest questions. If there is a serious use case Subversion
lacks, it's good to know about it. I suspect in this case, the answer
is "write a wrapper script" rather than "spend a large amount of time
re-inventing the wheel." If it's not, though, I'm interested to learn
