I am suggesting that --no-newline should be replaced by --strict.  Is it
harder to understand when used with 'info' than it is when used with
'propget'?  It seems odd for different sub-commands to use different
names for what is essentially the same option.

'svn youngest' is not a precedent for using --no-newline in 'svn' as it
was never released.  'svnversion' does use '--no-newline' but it is not
'svn' and it also has '-c' that conflicts with 'svn'.
