Do repositories *ever* get dates from clients? I think only revision
numbers and paths are transmitted in that direction.

It's okay for new repositories to break old clients, as long as the
code to deal with the new repository is checked in well before the
live server is actually upgraded. Being forced to upgrade your client
is normal around here :-). Being forced to re-checkout your working
copy is not (or shouldn't be, anyway, heh).

Have you / can you set up httpd-2.0 w/ mod_dav_svn locally?
