I think the problem is that in Python one has to write:

  if hasattr(core, 'svn_auth_set_gnome_keyring_unlock_prompt_func'):
    core.svn_auth_set_gnome_keyring_unlock_prompt_func(ctx.auth_baton, prompt_func_gnome_keyring_prompt)

If called unconditionally:

  core.svn_auth_set_gnome_keyring_unlock_prompt_func(ctx.auth_baton, prompt_func_gnome_keyring_prompt)

it will work with 1.7.3 and fail with 1.7.2. In Ruby the magic is:

  if Svn::Ext::Core.respond_to?(:svn_auth_set_gnome_keyring_unlock_prompt_func)
    Svn::Ext::Core::svn_auth_set_gnome_keyring_unlock_prompt_func(ctx.auth_baton, gnome_keyring_prompt)

and I suppose Perl might have something similar.

I think that means this is not suitable for a backport.
