Yes and no. You still have to write the Perl-specific SWIG stuff, which
is the hard part. Take a look at the existing swig files and you'll see
that most of the ugly stuff is language-specific (Python, Java).

If you aren't an expert with either SWIG or XS my guess is that Inline::C
is probably the easiest way to do this. Of course, I idly tried working
on a Subversion wrapper using Inline::C, and I got nowhere. But I really
don't know much about C, and I didn't try all _that_ hard.

My guess that the really hard part is simply grokking the subversion API,
and understanding what needs exposure to Perl and what doesn't.
