IMPORTANT: time to checkout new working copy

This is the mail you've been waiting for.

Here's why developers should check out a new working copy:

  1. (critical) We're renaming SVN to .svn.

  2. (preventative) The administrative dir format has changed (see
      commit #200).

  3. (preventative) You'll get binary props from ra_dav now. This
      will protect you against bogus merges on binary data. (And soon
      gstein will have props working for updates too.)

  4. (freebie) You needn't checkout repos/svn anymore; you can
      checkout repos/svn/trunk now, and avoid that extra directory.

Wait for the next commit, where I change SVN to .svn. Then go ahead
and re-checkout. I'll post a new tarball on the website as well.
