      Description

      The man page is missing lots of things that would be really helpful.
      1) The SEE ALSO section needs cross references to the other programs
      included with subversion.  (e.g. svnlook, svnserver, etc...)
      
      2) The descriptions of the subcommands need more detail, especially
      descriptions of output.  For instance, the update subcommand lists the
      characters used to flag actions taken, but status doesn't mention
      anything about what it uses.
      
      3) There needs to be a section that mentions what environment
      variables affect the operation of subversion.
