May I ask something about "Improved Bindings to Other Languages" project on GSoC 2008?

I'm a student willing to take part in GSoC 2008. I found
your project ideas on the GSoC page. There's a project
"Improved Bindings to Other Languages" that I'm interested

I have used svn for version control, but haven't used the
API directly yet. It is said from the project idea page that:

  it offers a rich set of "binding surfaces": well-documented
  APIs that are available not only in C (Subversion's native
  language) but in other programming languages as well

But I can only find a brief discussion about API in the svn-book.
So I'm wondering where to find the documents, or shall I read
the header files directly?

I would also like to get some more informations about the projects.
For example, the Python binding. It is said from the page that
coverage is not yet complete. So what is current status and goal?

I start to use the googlecode upload tool recently and found it
didn't work. It is a Python script that uses svn API. I searched
through the Internet and found that it seemed to be caused by
changes in the svn API.

I didn't go in more details. So I don't know whether it is the
change of svn itself or just the Python binding. But I think as
well as making the coverage more complete, we also need to make
the API more stable.
