This is the solution I am going with right now, have had good luckwith it so far in development:

Make sure to GAC the IKVM.GNU.Classpath.dll & run ngen against it --the performance seems to be very good.
No guarantees, only been playing with it for a day. It should alsowork cross-platform, but have not tried on Linux. Let me know if youwant anymore details on how to get this running. It doesn't look tosupport svnlook, but it should be pretty fast running on the same boxto use the Client info functionality -- and lots safer to maintain.
There are others -- see the thread above, Ben pointed out SvnSharp as well.
