I think you're confused about svn clients.

There's absolutely no difference between a commandline client and a GUI
client. There's exactly one subversion client API, and all clients use
that API. So all clients are *functionally* identical, though the UIs
may look different.

Generically speaking, "a subversion client" creates a workspace
(working copy) on a locally mounted volume. It could be local disk, or
it could be a network share. Whether the client is CLI or GUI is
irrelevant.
