You may find this more problematic than you'd expect.  I follow the
subclipse list a little and have the impression that pure-java library
development against SVN lags behind because it's difficult to keep up
with the evolving standard.  I should have thought that the rate of
evolution has significantly slowed, but that is not the impression I
get.  Subclipse for instance uses jni for the low level svn operations
so it can go against the original native libraries.

On the other hand, there are some attempts to provide pure java svn
libraries (one is called javaSVN I think?) so if these are usable in
practice, the work could be trivial.
