That's incorrect.  Hand rolled ruby bindings for SVN once existed, but 
bitrotted.  The SWIG bindings are new, and work just fine, it's just 
that nobody has made them work on windows yet because, well, there are 
fewer hackers working on windows and building SVN on windows isn't 
overly easy.  Patches welcome.
