The only reason I haven't said "-1" is that no one's actually proposed
putting it in mainline Subversion yet (unless I just missed it).

When an organization has no problem with the features of the existing
network layers, yet still won't permit itself to run Subversion over
them, I don't think our response should be to make a new protocol.
