I don't think Thomas was proposing that this replace Subversion's
native C libraries. He's just saying it should be the de facto
standard for people writing Java code that uses Subversion; and he was
proposing a way to make that Java faster.

(I have no opinion on whether any of this is a good or a bad idea,
since I don't use any of the various Java/Subversion solutions myself,
but anyway it didn't seem such like a strange suggestion...)
