Firstly thanks Ben for taking such an interest and asking the tough
questions. When I see answers like "because someone asked for it" then I
get suspicious that we ( me included) might have done the wrong thing ..
or at least not thought about it.

One of the big critisims of the early releases of Subclipse were that it
was tied to a particular release of Subversion because of the native
bindings. This is just a mechanism to make that relationship a little
more loose. Although having said that I'm sure I've mixed version before
and not had a problem (yet).

The SVNClientAdapter stuff allows the user to change our underlying
mechanism to Subversion without the client code really knowing or
caring. There is of course talk I see in the Subversion lists every so
often about a pure Java client ... if that ever does happen then it will
be a smooth transition for us.

Note this adapter is also used by the SVN Ant tasks.
