Python bindings to get working copy revision

In the middle of a python script, I am willing to get the revision number of
the current directory. I have tried to get into the SWIG svn-python
bindings, but they look so huge, I am having difficulties to know what to
start with.

I ended up writing the following that uses the command line:

     # Get revision from svn command line on repository
     revision = 0
     fileRev = popen("svn info .", "r")
     for line in fileRev:
         if 'Revision' in line:
             revision = match("Revision: (\d+)", line).group(1)

It works and I am pretty happy with it. But could someone indicate me what
would be the code to do the same thing using the python-subversion bindings.
