Well, I don't think there's anything like that. There are, however,
language bindings available for many languages, including Python,
Perl, Java, Ruby, C++, C# and PHP. You could probably write a script
in one of these languages which would do what you want, and due to
the language bindings it should be considerably faster than
repeatedly calling the svn command line client.
