Subversion is written in plain C, not C++. There is a published API, but
not in terms of classes and methods.

You could use TortoiseProc.exe, but that is only intended as a way to
open the TSVN dialogs from the command line, which means they need user
interaction. Why not use the svn client and a batch script? The svn
client install is smaller than TSVN.

Sorry, I have no idea. I know the bindings exist but have never used
them. These are all questions you should be asking on the
users@subversion mailing list.
