While at it, you could also change #apr_pool_t to C<SVN::Pool>,
#svn_opt_revision_t to (the Perl equivalent you described), etc.

Separately, is there a reason the compiled swig-* docs aren't online on
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/, alongside the C and javahl ones? At
least the Perl ones are on CPAN[1], but searching for the Python ones
yields mostly stackoverflow threads asking where they are.

(I don't think anyone ever asked that question on users@, though.)
