The problem is that the SVK client does not use SVN at all. It only
uses the SVN repository and has code to push/pull with another
repository. An SVK checkout/commit etc. is all custom code. So you
are pretty much starting from scratch if trying to integrate it with
Eclipse. All of the SVN API calls we make to run our client would
just fail with an SVK working copy.
