All I meant is I'm running a binary, and I wasn't running a script.  The 
thought of an alias didn't cross my mind, because my .bash_profile and 
.bashrc are pretty bare.  But anyway:

jstrauss at hydrogen:~$ alias
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
alias xterm='xterm -vb -sb -rightbar -sl 2000 -fn 7x14 -geometry 80x30 
-bg black -fg grey'

jstrauss at hydrogen:~$ svn co --verbose
Subcommand 'checkout' doesn't accept option '-v [--verbose]'
Type 'svn help checkout' for usage.

I think my question is just more of a shell question.  I could see if I 
was doing something like `svn $1` where the child shell was swallowing 
the output, but this is a function in my main login shell
