I think you might have an unorthodox interpretation of our source tree

Stuff in tools/ *is* in the main source tree, and is a supported part
of Subversion. Stuff in contrib/ is not, we just distribute it with
Subversion for users' convenience. (This distinction is exactly why
we have the two directories.)

The subversion/ subdirectory in our tree is just where we put all the
C libraries. We could even move the client apps out of there if we
wanted to. In fact, I wouldn't mind having lib/ and apps/ and getting
rid of subversion/. But that's a separate discussion.

In any case, tools/ is part of Subversion.
