No, I haven't heard back. For what its worth, I see a number of
debianisms in the svn-buildpackage tool (known as svn-inject), though
that's to be expected given the purpose of svn-buildpackage.

I also don't think its intended to be as general purpose as svn-load.

Note that there is also another potential contender known as vcs-load-dirs:

It supports multiple revision control systems. Though the description
says it was "in response to Subversion's svn_load_dirs", svn is not
listed as one of the supported vcs systems (though svk is).
