-h works too. (-randomletter gives an error message that, unlike for
'svn' itself, doesn't mention --help.)

In addition to the scripts (and C programs) in subversion/tests/, you
may want to look at build/run_tests.py too. Feel free to ignore the
WIMP stuffs on first read.

The docs we have are:

- subversion/tests/README
- subversion/tests/cmdline/README
- --help output

Other docs that might contain or point to useful info are:
- README
- perhaps http://subversion.apache.org/HACKING

If you have concrete suggestions (or patches) regarding how to improve
the tests' documentation, we'll be glad to hear them.

Cheers,

Daniel
