I've never heard of Powerbuilder, or any Subversion project to support
it. So I guess the answer is "no".

Yes, see the AnkhSVN project: http://ankhsvn.tigris.org

Yes. We have no mechanism for comparing binary files.

There are a number of GUIs for SVN, all separate projects. TortoiseSVN
(http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org) is the most popular, and probably
"closest" to the commandline client in functionality. I don't know of
any GUI that has the exact same functionality as the commandline. See
the 'links' page on the SVN website for links to GUI projects:

> Does the web interface have the same functionality?

Web interfaces are browsing only, not changing data. So they can't be
compared to the commandline client. The same 'links' page lists web
interfaces such as ViewCVS and WebSVN.

No locking in svn 1.0.x. It's a planned feature for svn 1.1, but that
won't be out for many months.

There are no reporting tools that I'm aware of, certainly none built
in. The "trac" system claims to have some reporting abilities, which is
a big system mentioned on the links page.
