Well, of course there is no such module. :)

Ah, this is interesting and certainly explains the import error you get
from Python (it can't import a DLL that can't be loaded because of
missing dependencies).

It looks like you have at least one other program on your system
(usually GNU tools, or GIMP, or something like that) that uses intl.dll
(yes, intl.dll, not iconv.dll), and that this intl.dll is an older
version than the one that comes with the Subversion binaries. I suggest
you search your disks for files named intl.dll and iconv.dll, and see
how many you have, and try to figure out which ones are actually used.

We avoid this problem in the upcoming 1.2 release by shipping our own
(renamed) intl.dll.
