I didn't meant to suggest to interface a program using the shell and 
arguments on the command line, but use an already stable version (I 
suppose) of a library which is being used by other projects (AnkhSVN 
uses nSVN), and which is the one that uses PInvokes to make calls to the 
native library.

This way we could reuse the effort of the authors of the external 
library which interfaces with SVN. For example, now I think there has 
been an update of nSVN because of the new version 1.4.0 of Subversion.
