Why would it be more platform-independent? If we're able to build the
command line client on a platform, then the C libraries are available on
that platform, by definition.

Or did you mean "programming language independent"? Well, if you want to
write the GUI in Jave, you can always use JNI to call Subversion's APIs.
Yes, you'll have to build the libraries for every platform you want your
GUI to run on; but that's the same as building the command-line client
on those platforms.
