Well, right now we have a distutils installer (setup.py) that does the
build and installation for us. The idea is to update the existing
Subversion build infrastructure to expose the ability to build the
ctypes-python-bindings. We will need to create a few new make targets
to handle this but since the real work is done in setup.py, this will
be easy.

This should not be a problem either. The ctypes-python-bindings use
the 'csvn' module name instead of 'svn' and since there are no Python
extension modules for the ctypes-python-bindings, there will also be
no conflict with the existing 'libsvn'.
