Quite obviously, you never attempted to support a diverse user basis 
(just think of all the platforms) in Java (or another programming 
language) using C libraries. I don't think, it is required to point
out the various problems.

Suffice it to say, that historically the SVN Java bindings where
the starting point for most projects integrating SVN into Java,
but where dropped for a reason.
