RE: client API not optimal

        May be the hiding of deeper internals can be done with
        the C++ API that Brent is writing. It is quite feasible
        to lose all of the svn and apr headers from that C++ API
        using pure virtual classes and factory functions to create
        the objects. But I don't think Brent was planning to go
        that far.

        I agree that the learning curve to drive svn from python
        or C++ is far to steep.

        The hideous SourceSafe API is easy to use in comparison.
        And perforce commands ability to output in Python
        marshaled objects make automating around perforce reliable
        (no parsing of the output).

        Personally I'm hoping that I can run the svn command to do
        all the GUI/automation that I'll need. I'm not looking
        forward to learning to drive svn at its C API.
