Your approach would have benefitted from following the generally accepted etiquette of checking the FAQ or the archives of a mailing list before posting a question, particularly one with such sweeping consequences. This issue has been discussed numerous times before. Had you checked, you would have seen that many of your assumptions are incorrect. You probably also would have found that your intended post would not have contributed anything new to the discussion.
To you, your comments seemed like a helpful suggestion that somehow must not yet have occurred to anyone. To people who have been working on the project for years and following the mailing list for quite some time, it was just another drive-by shooting by someone who hasn't done the proper research before asking others to invest considerable time to improve the product in some way.
That said, you'll probably be interested in the JavaSVN client being worked on at http://tmate.org/svn/, as others have already mentioned. It's pretty impressive and apparently coming together quicker than I think most long-timers here would have expected.
