I don't think you can stay totally outside the CVS abstraction
barrier; for instance, I don't think it's possible to get a list of
all files within the repository (including the ones which are no
longer present).

Creating a temporary working space also sounds like a pain in the
butt.

On the other hand, staying outside the SVN abstraction barrier
shouldn't be a problem, since we should have appropriate library
interfaces.
