The Subversion Python bits have been installed in the Python 2.6 tree
and really need to be in the Python 2.7 tree.  On a CentOS 6 machine
with Python 2.7 installed via scl I can make things work by moving the
Python bits from the 2.6 location to the 2.7 location.  As root:

mv /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/libsvn /opt/rh/python27/root/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages
mv /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/svn /opt/rh/python27/root/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages

Then I can do:

$ svnadmin create repo
$ scl enable python27 python
Python 2.7.5 (default, Dec  3 2013, 08:35:16) 
[GCC 4.4.6 20120305 (Red Hat 4.4.6-4)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from svn import repos
>>> r ="repo")
