I wouldn't expect that support to exist today because Subversion's clients
don't require it (and that's really the driver for most of our server-side
features). Is it likely to grow that support in the future? Only if
someone writes the code. We've no reason to reject that enhancement, but
(again, because Subversion clients don't make use of the functionality) also
no compelling reason to prioritize it highly.

Cool. And yes, you're asking in exactly the right place.
