OK great; I appreciate that it's low priority. Do you want me to raise a
bug for you?

As I said privately, I was actually just trying to preempt "why don't you
use SVNKit?" answers by saying that I knew this would avoid the need for
the native library and JAR 'pairing', but I was going the native route for
licensing reasons. I appreciate that there are other pros to using native
JavaHL (as you outline); I've edited the StackOverflow question to make
this clear (and credited your WANDisco suggestion in a comment on the
accepted answer which suggested the same). Thanks again.
