This sounds very useful! I like how it simplifies the test suite. I
just have a drive-by suggestion for you here. If you don't want Python
to interpret the backslashes, use raw strings. In that case, you don't
need to double-escape. E.g.

  svntest.factory.make(sbox, r"""
                       echo "This represents a binary file\n" >> iota
                       svn ci
                       svn lock -m 'lock & load' iota
