There are numerous reasons why such a thing has not been done, most of
which boil down to "it's a lot of work".

If you want to do it, feel free, but don't be all that surprised if
people thing you're a bit nuts for doing so.

Search the archives of the various Subversion mailing lists and I'm sure
you'll find numerous examples of people who show up saying "wouldn't it
be great if we had a pure-java implementation of Subversion", and as far
as I can tell none of them have actually produced anything other than
big ideas.
