That helps just a little. It's seriously cryptic and has no roadmap
at all, but if you can somehow guess where to look it helps.

It would be a very good idea to have pointers to this site in the main
Subversion documentation (both in the book, and on
subversion.tigris.org). If those already exist, I managed to miss

I just looked at the "svn copy" API call. I *think* it has just
enough information, if I wanted to program in C.

Unfortunately, I want to do it in Python. And I can't find any
information at all about that. It looks like I have to create a
client_ctx object and put a log_msg_func2 into that, which means I
have to create that function. But what is the function signature in
Python? That's where I lost it before, and I still see no answer.
