I would like to be able to do some of this stuff from a "client", so that
would mean I would need libsvn_repos .. right?

For example, I would like to be able to create multiple directories in the
repository with one commit. Would also be nice to copy/move multiple
items in the repository with one commit. For example, when I need to make
a tag of the Subclipse project I need to do this:

svn mkdir url://tags/subclipse/X.Y.Z
svn copy url://trunk/subclipse url://tags/subclipse/X.Y.Z/subclipse
svn copy url://trunk/svnclientadapter

I usually just do it in the WC and then commit, but it would be nice to be
able to build a UI that could do it against the repository.

I think it would be cool to have some of this added, but I also think the
current approach to JavaHL makes the most sense. I really wonder how well
a Java class with all of these JNI calls would perform. For a lot of
operations, it would not matter but I sure wouldn't want to do working
copy status checks this way.
