I can't speak for anyone else here, but I regard both those traits
as being kludgy.

I think svk is a clever idea, but I would prefer to see support for
decentralized development integrated into the subversion core and done
in a cleaner way. At the very least I'd be happier if the svk-equivalent
stuff were in Python, which I think has better long-term maintainability.

I am not a core svn maintainer, so don't take my objections as gospel.
