[IronPython] Py 2.5 bindings for SVN 1.4.4

Hello Jon,

Almost inevitably the Python SVN bindings will be for CPython and *not* 
work for IronPython (but check this).

Interacting with the executable will be fine for many purposes (we do 
this a bit in our build process to get revision numbers and checkin 
messages etc). No need to go through Powershell though. Use 

Otherwise look for a .NET SVN interface.
