After seeing this:
CMakeFiles/kdevsubversion.dir/svninfojob.o: In function `SvnInternalInfoJob::run()':

(yes you guess right, they simply "forgot" to implement those methods in
the library, but expose them in the header!)
I made my decision. I'll develop our own C++ wrapper around the
subversion C API. I'll use svncpp as a starting base, but I'll introduce
Qt deps into the code as it makes some thing a lot nicer.
Until thats done (I'll do that in a branch or in playground) subversion
support will only work with rapidsvn <= 0.9.4.
You are wise, witty, and wonderful, but you spend too much time reading
this sort of trash.
