Improved C++ bindings (Client API)

From: Charley Bay <charleyb123_at_gmail.com>

Since "version control" is a transactional domain... it just
*screams* session/object lifecycle (to me). I've been
assuming a Subversion C++ wrapper for the client API
would come along for the past few years... just haven't
seen it.

I'm aware some projects (like RapidSVN) create their
own C++ wrappers. Digging into the archives, an interesting
comment from 2005 suggests that's not really a clean
wrapper, though (Oleg suggests the RapidSVN's C++
wrapper isn't really C++, but a, "wild mixture of Java&C"):


But, there were no follow-ups to that thread. Is there
no (or very little) interest?

I'd personally like to see a (clean and simple) OO
C++ wrapper to the C client API because I think it
would be much easier to use (e.g., no void* closure
objects being passed around with function pointers,
session lifecycles defined by object lifetimes, etc.)

For others interested in such a wrapper, are you happy
with what's already done (e.g., with RapidSVN's wrapper?)

This isn't a criticism of what exists -- I'm honestly curious
if there is interest in a C++ wrapper not tied to another
project (because I'd be very interested in it staying very
current with changes/updates to the client API, so it
would need some level of community interest/support
if it were to be initiated). Would anybody use it if it
existed, and how valuable would it be?
