I'm going to try and minimize the number of dependencies in the client on
the SVN server. I think the only one that is going to exist is the notion of
"one version number" (in terms of the model, and how to extract that number
from information the server sends).

On the other hand, the SVN server (specifically: mod_dav_svn) is going to be
quite SVN-specific. It will be rather limited as a generic DeltaV server in
the 1.0 release of SVN. Later versions will enhance its interop, but for now
we're going to focus on the minimum set of requires features to support the
SVN client.

In other words: the SVN client will be almost able to talk to any DeltaV
server. The SVN server will not (generally) be usable by any DeltaV client.
