http://www.xsteve.at/prg/emacs/psvn.el is the file, just put it into
your loadpath.

the svn mode for emacs is pretty good. you can see what has changed,
look at the diffs (with ediff), move things back and forth, mark the
files you want to commit, revert, etc. of course it isn't a gui, but
some of us like that ;-). I used pcl-cvs, a similar emacs mode for
cvs, for years and found it better than the various cvs gui wrappers
of the time.

some might consider it "better than nothing", but emacs users will
just consider it "nothing better!". oh, and it will work on a console
too if you don't have a window system, so you don't need to change
your way of working to accommodate your tool.
