Here comes another collision :)

You couldn't be more wrong. JavaHL is an official part of Subversion.
Subversion is really a set of libraries. The command line is the default
"UI" consumer of these libraries. JavaHL is the official Subversion Java
bindings to the same libraries. It uses the exact same code as the
command line.

I gave more details in the other email.
