Re: svn client admin directory question

I don't think I adequately described the solution earlier --
Using the javahl libraries basically does this -- instead ofJava-[JNI]->SVN-C, the IKVM.NET converter makes it run like: C#-[PInvoke]-SVN-C. And the javahl API's are much more friendly thethe C api's.
If you were coding C# straight to the SVN C APIs, this is how youwould do it -- but being able to directly use another high-level APIset to do it is much faster & easier to maintain.
