If your test script is meant to be part of Subversion's own test
suite, take a look at the svntest Python module that comes with
Subversion, in particular the svntest.run_and_verify_* functions. See
/subversion/tests/client/cmdline/svntest/ in the Subversion source
tree. And in that location's parent directory are a slew of test that
use that module.

Even if your test script is *not* meant to be part of Subversion, you
might consider learning from the svntest module anyway.
