Thanks for your answer Julian

One last thing to discuss: it seems not clear yet for me, upon your and
Karl's statements, the policy about the inclusion, given that they are a
bit contradictory: Karl argues about not accepting programs that have
SVN support (we could define them as anyone who calls svn client API,
right?) but you seem more focused on having just a "module" for a
program which is a client.

Regarding your opinion, and not Karl's, MonoDevelop could also be
included because:
- It's based on add-ins (more or less the same as plugins).
- It has a VersionControl add-in [1].
- It has a Subversion add-in [2], which depends on the former.
