thanks for the suggestion, but I'd rather stick to the originals, because I'm
not convinced all functionality is and will be in second-source bindings. Is
there any reason the pysvn code doesn't use the SWIG bindings internally? In
this way one could more easily customize them or add missing features.
Additionally, that's just another package to install, another shared lib and
thus another can of worms.

I may be somewhat biased here, but I can't really make out any sense in
'alternative' binding implementations. If the 'originals' are buggy, try to
fix it. If they don't expose all functionality, add it. If they are clumsy to
use, add a wrapper.

Thanks anyway,
 Jörg
