Yeah, I guess you could try to use that.

I apologize, John, but I have to really need to bail out of trying to
help you further on this. I can't seem to convince you that you're
killing yourself needlessly. I mean, if your itching to do some
Python, you'd be better off just writing a simple Python server that
pipes 'svnadmin dump' output across a socket, and a client that pipes
that junk through 'svnadmin load'. But the RA bindings have had
practically no attention given them, and the functionality they would
offer is far too abstract to earn a higher priority than getting the
svn_client, svn_wc, svn_repos, and svn_fs bindings up to speed.
