It has this note at the top:

;;; #########################################################################
;;; ## ##
;;; ## NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE MASTER VERSION OF VC-SVN.EL ##
;;; ## ##
;;; ## The canonical vc-svn.el now lives in the FSF Emacs tree, at ##
;;; ## http://savannah.gnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/emacs/emacs/lisp/vc-svn.el. ##
;;; ## The version here is maintained only because it is compatible with ##
;;; ## older releases of Emacs, since (as of this writing) the one in the ##
;;; ## FSF tree hasn't made it into an official release of Emacs yet. ##
;;; ## Eventually it will, though, and sometime after that the version ##
;;; ## here will go away. ##
;;; ## ##
;;; #########################################################################

So I think we're okay.
