heh, don't base your decision on subclipse, it isn't done yet.

i thought it did somewhere, i'll have to rectify that (though this has
been gone over on the mailing list)

i agree, it sucks. until today, i hadn't found a pre-compiled
libsvnjavahl for osx at all. now that you've pointed out the metissian
package, this may change.

the only reason this complaint isn't heard from windows users, is that
the svnjavahl statically links in the svn libs (no svn install is
required at all), unfortunately, nobody's been able to figure out how
to manhandle the build system to do this for *nix.
