I think there's some misunderstanding here.

I intend to write a Trac-specific VC plugin which provides
IRepositoryConnector API for SVN. I do not intend to write a
full-blown pysvn replacement. So I wonder why you "need this for other
projects", as it won't be useful outside Trac.

In my opinion, writing a pysvn replacement would be a bit insane thing
to do. pysvn is very big and comprehensive library ranging from
low-level to high-level. On the other hand, Trac VC API needs only a
little bit of information from version control plugins, which can be
done without following intricate details of Subversion C library and
APR(Apache Portable Runtime) too closely.

Anyway, if you have something to test, don't hesitate to let us know.
