i don't quite agree... the specific version of neon doesn't seem to be
that much of a problem from a packaging standpoint IMO. packages
should be built from releases, which are not too frequent, and
requiring specific versions of libraries for a release makes sense to
me. you get a more stable debugging environment for handling bug
reports from users.

i have the same issues to deal with for FreeBSD ports of subversion,
and the answer is just to only upgrade the version of neon when a
release of subversion requires it, not when the development version of
svn requires it. developers should be able to handle these sort of
