This can't be implemented in svn itself: for example, my shell
simply raises an error (without running the program) if a wildcard
failed to match:

% true *.nonexistent
zsh: no matches found: *.nonexistent
% echo $?
1
%

(the same would hold for s/true/svn/)

Yep.  I'm not fully convinced yet that it's a good idea.

Feel free to shepherd the issue though, e.g., start discussions (on the
appropriate list) to see what improvements are both doable and
acceptable and etc.
