Questions like this should be directed to the users@subversion.tigris.org
mailing list.

This is already available through several third-party OSS applications,
including ViewCVS (1.0, pending release) and Trac.

For these, you'd likely want to write code against Subversion's C API, or
one of the existing language bindings (Python, Perl, Java, Ruby). Given
your environment, wrapping the command-line binary and parsing the output
might also be considered as an option (there's tons of code float around on
the net which does this).

If I were you, I would've installed Trac from the get-go. It includes a
reasonably useful bug tracker, a Wiki, RSS feed, etc.
