Subversion Administrative Functions via Java

Hi All,
    I am writing an application where I need to perform only administrative
Subversion commands. We're talking about svnadmin, svnlook and
svndumpfilter for example. I do not know of a way to allow all of these
with a single library so I've thought about writing a command line wrapper.
I know that SVNKit is available but it seems to do mainly client side stuff
and costs money for non-open source delivery. Here are my questions:

1. Is there any library you guys are aware of that would require little to
no environment configuration to give me what I need? (I'm really trying to
steer away from a scenario where I cannot deliver one product that will
suite any operating system. This means I do not want to have to ship
lower-level libraries like javahl or require my clients compile/install them
themselves unless necessary.)
2. Do you guys see any problems wrappering the command line interface? I
know some clients do this but I don't want to make a poor decision up front
that I will regret later.

Thanks in advance.

Take care,

Jeremy
