We should, but someone has to implement the missing bits. Any takers? I
would do it, but my hands are full; apart from the Unicode normalization
fix that I'd really like to get into 1.9, I also have a number of API
enhancements on my list that will make it easier to write other clients.

I don't understand the difference between "proper stream" and "pipe",
and which callbacks you'd like to have. Would you care to elaborate,
please? I'm very interested in expanding this API to make it work better.

FWIW, it's currently a complete replacement for the tunnel definitions
in ~/.subversion/config; it doesn't add any functionality to that, but
neither does it provide any /less/ functionality. If you'd care to
explain what you think is missing, I'll be happy to implement it.

We're anywhere near to being ready for that, IMO.
