I actually disagree that this would require lots of new code. Also,
it does not require updating the uncommitted txn with merges -- that's
a further enhancement, not a necessity for the basic feature.

What Subversion needs is a small change, a way to commit such that the
txn is left dangling. Then the bindings offer the rest of what's
needed. Of course, new code would need to be written around
Subversion, but I think the larger challenge here is designing the
interface and workflow. The actual coding task is not so large.
