I don't want to scare you away but it's a lot of work!

Run the following commandline in the root of the subversion source:

egrep '^svn_[a-zA-Z0-9_]* *\(' subversion/include/*.h |
sed 's/^[^:]*:svn_\([^(_]*\)[(_].*$/\1/' |
sort | uniq -c | sort

The output will be the number of functions followed by the module name
containing them.
Here are the last few lines as of r37338:

      28 stream
      39 path
      75 io
      86 ra
      96 repos
     101 fs
     131 client
     160 wc

The sum of all functions is 1153, ignoring the functions ending with a
digit it's still 903. (there may be some false positives but after a quick
look at svn_wc.h i haven't seen any in there)

A lot of work if you do it manually.

Another option is using swig (I hope swig supports PHP). But then you
write about 100k lines support code. Also a lot of work.

Probably the easiest way is using svncpp (http://rapidsvn.tigris.org/) but
it wraps the client side functions only. svncpp seems to also support
swig, maybe that makes it even more easy...
