Sounds like a similar issue that of my PHP repository browser. I had
set myself the goal of having a maximum of two calls to svn.exe. In the
long run I want to use the proper Subversion libs... I checked out SWIG,
and it seems to support PHP.

But I don't know how SWIG works. I think it generates a PHP module
(i.e. DLL)--but doing that would require lots of compilation with PHP
and Subversion headers, libraries, etc.

My script sounds a lot simpler than a branch viewing tool, but if you
want to see an example of "how not to" access the repository using
svn.exe, send me an e-mail and I'll send it to you. (It's not up for
general publication because I'm embarassed about it!).
