I think what Daniel's saying is that what Subclipse is doing today isn't
sufficient for what subversion is doing in 1.3. Curently, Subclipse
only knows about one directory. In svn13, subversion potentially knows
about 2 different dirs, ".svn" and "_svn". The get api returns _svn,
but the is api returns true for both names, as I understand it.

In places where Subclipse is just comparing a dir name against the adm
dir name, subclipse could use the is api through javahl. However, in
many places where Subclipse is using the get api, such as to register it
  with Eclipse for hiding, it should actually call a third api that
doesn't currently exist, get_all_possible_admdirnames, which returns
{"_svn",".svn"}.
