I took a look into kdesdk-kioslaves - the code for svn there is 
completely different from kdesvn kioslave. Therefore I would suggest to 
remove kdesdk-kioslaves/svn because I won't maintain two different 
implementations for one protocol.
A distro packager can separate the kdesvn kioslave into a separate 
package, at least this is what I would expect looking at the kdesvn code.
