Sure, but to do *what*? To browse the repository? To behave like a
full-fledged svn client that manages working copies? To draw animated
cartoons? Can you be more specific? Subversion is mostly a
collection of C libraries with many, many APIs. What layer are
attempting to drive, and what will be presented to the user?

FWIW, there are a number of repository-browsing programs out there,
though they're all CGI (rather than client-side) web apps. ViewVC
(viewvc.tigris.org) is very popular, and allows you to browse both cvs
and svn repositories.

Actually, there is one repository browser -- called mod_svn_view --
which does a lot of client-side javascript. You might want to take a
look at it.
