Okay, that makes sense. (I don't consider myself to be more than a
gadfly here -- the current bindings maintainers are the ones who will
have to do the work, so let's hope to hear from more of them soon! :-) ).

Seriously, part of the goal here is to not occupy Subversion core
development time with bindings stuff. But of course, what happens
with the bindings after they leave this tree still has to be "good".

However, beyond what I've said so far, I probably don't need to be
much involved (and would only interfere if I stayed). So I'll exit
the thread now. Have a good discussion w/ the other bindings
maintainers. Sometime soon, I'll post back with a date for taking
them out of the svn tree, by which time hopefully y'all will have a
plan ready.
