I agree, neither is ideal. I went through the same thought process, and
didn't come up with anything. I think what you've done is fine, most
people won't bother with setting these properties and will just use the
implementation that is available.

The multi-property approach might be best, because you can specify which
implementations you will allow to be used (if you really care). But
using that logic, you'd also need a property for the cmd line. ???

In the end it doesn't really matter ... :)

I noticed that you default javasvn=true, so to use JavaSVN you really
only need to do "javahl=false" .... and that's the way it probably
should be.
