      Description

      Hi, during the review of the SVN Book 
      i have found a little issue:
      
      In the book it's written:
      
      In Subversion 1.4, this is required—only full mirroring of repositories is 
      permitted. In Subversion 1.5, though, you can use svnsync to mirror only some 
      subtree of the repository, too.
      
      But when I try to get the help message about the CLI (RC11):
      ---------------
      svnsles9:~ # svnsync init --help
      initialize (init): usage: svnsync initialize DEST_URL SOURCE_URL
      
      Initialize a destination repository for synchronization from
      another repository.
      
      The destination URL must point to the root of a repository with
      no committed revisions.  The destination repository must allow
      revision property changes.
      ---------------
      But this is not true, cause in SVN 1.5 you can use a subdirectory of the 
      source_url ...
