The idea is that SVN *is* the API.  You could probably just use  
svn:externals to have it hosted elsewhere and synced to wp- 
plugins.org  Slightly less easy is setting up a script to commit your  
external changes to wp-plugins.org

Note that your plugin would have to be licensed under the GPL, as  
that is a requirement of having your code live (even as a copy) at wp-
