It has changed on practically every release. Sometime, in an incompatible
fashion which requires a decent amount of client change. Note that even
Joe's own "cadaver" program is stuck back on Neon 0.12 because it hasn't
been upgraded.

That said, SVN is using the latest Neon, so if your port can require a
specific revision (0.15.3), which happens to be the latest, then we should
probably be okay. And SVN will more than likely track Neon pretty quickly.
