Indeed it was. FWIW I agree there are good arguments for a new viewspec

The alternative would be to use "svn list --generate-viewspec" and "svn
switch/checkout --use-viewspec < viewspecfile" or something like this.
The obvious downside would be that one subcommand would be used to
generate the viewspec while another one would be used to apply it. I
think Bert brought up other arguments against adding it to "svn list".
