It's not just about the protocol. If I checkout a working copy using
JavaSVN, can I then use the regular 'svn' C program against that
working copy with no problems? What about the opposite scenario?

If we ever standardize into a spec, there will be much more than just a
protocol to document. (FWIW, though, the protocols *are* documented,
as well as the working copy format. The only documentation of weird
edge-case behaviors seems to exist in the comments in our regression
tests.)
