I didn't knew of module svn-tools at our svn repo! :|

Yes svnci does a bit more, but obviously I would have to substitute
gedit for vi as an editor, and also taylor it a bit to fit my needs
better ...

I'll get it a spin, and if I like it all change my simios.org article
to recommend it instead of my small alias.

I'm trying to become a "Rosh Gadol" before my own eyes. 
See http://www.joelonsoftware.com/items/2004/12/06.html for enlightment.
It hurts!
