That's why we're planning to add a "shell mode" to svn, so that you can
fork it once and just pipe the commands in afterwards.

We decided long ago that the data in the admin dir are private. We want
to be able to change the format without breaking any and all tools that
use it. You use svn to interpret the data, or link your app with libsvn_wc.

By the way, you need (at least) an XML parser to read the admin data. Do
you want to add that dependency to vc-mode? I guess not.
