Random Perl/SVN Question

(Sorry, no Buffy tie-in, despite several long seconds of trying to find one...)

I figure there's an equal or better chance of someone here having done Perl 
work with SVN repos, as compared to any other forum I can easily annoy...

The core classes that come with subversion seem to be fairly mid- to low-level, 
and what I need is the ability to analyze a specific transaction (pre- or 
post-commit are equally acceptable for this task). To be more specific, I need 
to know what files are part of the transaction, and what their disposition is 
("U", "D", "A", etc.). Short of grep'd (or ack'ing) through the SVK sources, 
can anyone suggest how this would be done with the core Perl/SVN classes?
