Re: 0.32, the "1.0" milestone, and the 1.0 release.

I'm just checked to see what the state of Python API was in the issues.
There is one issue 1451. Is it still you're intention to ship 1.0
without a scripting API that works? In my world this is a gating
factor for adoption of subversion. I'm not trying to change your
mind on release criteria, I just want to know when this will be
important enough to make work. Then I can plan what I do accordingly.

I'll keep working with Russell to get svn.client working to help
get this usable. But I fear that at some point we will run out of
knowledge of how subversion and its bindings are supposed to work and
will need help from a core developer.
