namely those two?:

# dpkg -L libsvn0

As I understand from the swig website, their purpuse is to use svn from perl
resp. python, not to make perl or python features available to svn, right?

i.e. no feature of libsvn0 is dependent on perl or python, besides it's
usage from either of it, which obviously is.

to me it seems like that split has allready happened:

# apt-cache search svn
libsvn-core-perl - Perl bindings for Subversion (aka. svn)
python2.3-subversion - Python modules for interfacing with Subversion (aka.

I tend to share Ben Collins-Sussman's view, those dependencies must stem
from the developers' needs for perl and python and are spare for the binary

please correct me, if i got something wrong.
