I, too, have been considering Java/JNI as the interface of choice.

I think this is the point of the SWIG bindings that are being
currently developed in the Subversion source tree already.

Okey dokey.

Heh. Saying things like "Functions maybe like WinCVS" might get you
beheaded by some of our list followers. :-) I like the idea of using
Swing -- in fact, I (at least initially) like any idea that will earn
us a GUI that not just behaves the same on all supported platforms,
but *looks* the same as well.

These just my immediate reactionary responses. I haven't had time to
really think through the pros and cons of many of the possible ways
this GUI could be accomplished.
