This could always happen after our 1.0 release.

Not right now, I'm afraid.

The issue is that we're nearing our alpha release which is a "feature
freeze". We should be releasing our 1.0 version by this fall. At the moment,
Subversion is a stable, near-fully-developed version control system. We've
been using Subversion for its own version control system for well over eight
months now.

From your SourceForge project page, I see your project is labeled as
"pre-alpha" and registered just a few months ago. I get the feeling the two
projects are at very different points in their life cycle.

ANSI C. We're built as a bunch of libraries, so we will have bindings for
those libraries in a bunch of languages (Python, Ruby, and Java have all
been started; SWIG is the workhorse here, and will give us plenty of target
languages). So while Java can be used with Subversion, we're solidly in the
C camp.
