Client libraries - binding with other languages

I've been looking around the documentation and I've found something like this:

[...] Binding Directly-A Word About Correctness [...]

(full text is to be found under http://scm.sipfoundry.org/svndoc/ch08.html#svn-ch-8-sect-1.2.1)

I think that's the only reasonable idea, but clearly not the best one. How do you feel about a DLL that could be accessible using imports instead of statically linking all the stuff?

That would:
  a) make the client applications that come with the svn client/server for win32 a lot smaller,
  b) since this apps already use some dlls (libdb43.dll, libeay32.dll just to name some) it wouldn't make the client dll-independant,
  c) and last but not least it would open a whole new doorway for other programmers to write good, quality and need-oriented clients.

I'm in need of such a client to perform some read-only tasks from a web client that I'm currently developing (viewer+task+bug tracker+project management). I suppose it will not be hard for you, guys to compile something like that.
