If r25607 gets backported (I just nominated it), the 1.4.x test suite
with 1.4.x clients will pass against a trunk server (or at least
svnserve; I haven't tested DAV)!

I have some ideas about dealing with this; hopefully I'll find time in
the next week to take a stab at it. (Brief version: add a
--server-minor-version argument to the test harness; if it's 4 instead
of 5 (probably not worth supporting anything older, at least at first)
it will use --pre-1.5.x-compatible when it creates repositories, and
individual tests can be marked with a skip condition like
   SkipUnless(some_merge_test, server_supports_mergeinfo)
(which will just be sugar for minor version >= 5).) I think we should
be able to get full bidirectional testability between 1.4.x and trunk;
then we can set up the buildbots :)
