What I meant was that if you wanted to write a client that interacted with
the Subversion file system rather than through network calls, you could not
do it in pure Java but require JNI bindings. That is true even if you
recreate all the FS code in Java, because the Berkeley DB code requires JNI
bindings (as I understand it). Of course, you could try to recreate
Berkeley DB in Java as well, but that would be no small undertaking.
