A php wrapper around the svn command-line client sounds like an completely
braindead idea. Not only that php is utter crap, but relying on exit codes and
output of svn is the worst idea ever. It also sounds like a security nightmare -
allowing php to use exec() and system() is a pretty bad idea, and trying to
parse the output of programs is error-prone, too.

libsvn-dev is the only sane way to create a binding to svn for another language.
Please use that instead of the command line client.
