Nevertheless, if libsvn0 installs these shared libraries, I believe it
must depend on python/perl, otherwise these libraries are broken.

The libraries included in python2.3-subversion link against
libsvn_swig_py; but perhaps libsvn_swig_{py,perl} could be moved into
python2.3-subversion and libsvn-core-perl. On the other hand, there
might be other problems with this (such as requiring libsvn-core-perl
and python2.3-subversion to be rebuilt every time libsvn0 changes.)
