Given that both JavaHL and JavaSVN exist for Subclipse and provide
superior performance and usability, supressesing it from casual usage
doesn't seem like an unreasonable idea. Rather than completing
ripping it out, how about not allowing it as a choice unless a
configuration toggle has been set (e.g. some System property)?

Exactly -- it'll always be seriously useful to SvnAnt.
