Your sentence seems to leave a little bad taste about people which are keen
to implement the subversion client side stuff in non-C(++) languages
themself. You can be ensured, that we do a lot of effort to keep our SVN
client compatible with your libraries. Anything else would be hara-kiri.

What other name you suggest, for instance, for applications like SmartSVN,
so the user knows that the application is related to Subversion/SVN?
