RE: csharp swig bindings

Instead starting all over in C#, maybe you can reuse the bindings used by
AnkhSVN? This archived mail contains more information:
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2004-05/0404.shtml. AnkhSVN itself is
Windows only, but maybe NSVN isn't.

Searching google also resulted in this project, which seems to target Mono
also:

rp.html

Lieven.
