Thank you very much for your patch. I applied it in part.

Very good idea. I was seeking for something like that

However, javahl=true is useful too when we want to test javahl (on windows)

It should work as it because in keyword test the username is set :
<svn username="cedric" javahl="${javahl}">

It should work (didn't it ?)

It is a supported interface, at least on windows.
It works better than command line interface on windows.
And it will be a supported interface on Linux too when javahl will be
integrated in the subversion build process.
McClain Looney also talked about a statically linked version of javahl
too ...

Yes but it is more efficient than command line interface.

The commandline version needs to be updated too. At least Subversion
0.35.1 broke it

We will try to support both interfaces (at least on windows and linux
for javahl).
