I've not used C# yet, but I'm told that it's supposed to be *really*
easy to access C library APIs, much easier than JNI. Why not just use
Subversion's C API's directly? They've been designed for exactly this
purpose: to be easily callable from many different languages.

We have C APIs to do this. Why are you going to reinvent the wheel? I
pray that C# doesn't suffer from the same sort of "must reimplement all
the world's code in C#" mentality that "100% java" people chant. C
*is* portable. And interfaceable. That's why we chose it.
