About a month ago I developed a alfa for a "write"
(commit/add/delete/rename) enhancement/patch to WebSVN.

The lead developer of WebSVN, Tim Armes, and I disagreed in principle
about whether it is a sane idea to provide commit access without a
working copy directory and hence conflict detection, and so the code is
probably never going to be part of stock-WebSVN.

But at least you can find the beginnings of what you are looking for here:
http://morch.com/websvn/write/listing.php?repname=WebSVN&path=%2Fbranches%2Fwrite%2F
or equivalently here:
http://tinyurl.com/4cq2w
(I don't export my repository directly yet, sorry - You'll have to make
a tarball from the WebSVN interface yourself.)

I've discovered svk and so now I'll set up a repository that mirrors the
"original" WebSVN so I can keep up with it. But I haven't gotten there
yet. My version is up to date with
http://svn.collab.net/repos/websvn/trunk version 284.

I wasn't bogged down by that in the slightest. Actually I thought it
made for neater code all round. My $0.02.
