Why did you consider JavaHL a problem? Were you aware that you only need
to include the JAR? It is only 43 KB. Given that JavaSVN + Ganymed is
over 1 MB what was the issue in including that JAR? You did not think you
needed the native libraries too did you? JavaSVN just provides an
implementation of the Java interfaces from JavaHL.

There was a time that I would have liked this code, but now I think that
Alex is pretty committed to supporting the JavaHL interface so I do not
see any reason to not use his code. There is no real advantage to having
our own implementation that has to "keep up" with his changes.
