Java binding - SWIG or not?

My (perhaps) ambitious goal is to write a Subversion client to build
into Eclipse.

I'll be needing the functionality of the svn_client.h stuff and it's
direct dependents, and I'd much rather use some JNI constructs than
having to rely on the SVN command line client, so I can stay away from
all the command line handling nonsense.

Since the stuff in subversion/bindings/java is incomplete *and*
outmoded, and I saw some fairly recent postings about the SWIG wrappers,
without any conclusion about the completeness, my question is really:

How should I contribute?
 A. Work on completing/improving/testing the SWIG/Java bindings
 B. Adjust/complete the original JNI effort

I'm finding the current state of the SWIG/Java binding somewhat, er,
un-Javaish, if I may, but I might just have understood little of it,
being new to SWIG.
