I'd agree with you about "svn log" because end users use "svn log" and
should be able to quickly understand the output format. You shouldn't have
to refer users to the "svnbook" just for something like that even if it is
on line.

But, "svnlook" is used by the administrator mainly for writing hook scripts.
The need for this information in the help output is much less. What should
be there is simply a quick description of what the command parameters are.
When you're using "svnlook", you probably already know the meaning of the
columns or have easy access to the svnbook.
