I would like to see a SVN integration into Eclipse, too.
Maybe, if I find the time, I can support you sometime in the future ...

What do you think about the following idea?

Copy the way SWT interacts with native toolkits.
The SWT JNI bindings are the smallest possible wrappers around
the native C functions. Everything else is done on the
Java side.

For details see this very interesting article:
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-SWT-Design-1/SWT-Design-1.html

Why don't you use this idea for the SVN JNI binding, too?
