Yeah, "Getting Subversion" should carry these links.

Agreed. But I think we need to be more selective in our references to
third-party tools. Search engines will tell folks all about the various
Subversion clients and integrations and stuff. We need to get out of the
business of providing a large *quantity* of links to every Dave Developer's
little Subversion tool, and be in the business of providing *quality* links
that have higher chance of making our users' and would-be users' lives better.
