Ah, okay.

Yup. So we would make a separate SVN_VER_LIBRARY in svn_version.h,
and parse it out for the build/install process, and also Scott's patch
would use it?

Zing! Twenty lashes with a wet noodle for my Unix-centric way of
thinking. Thanks for pointing this out.

Maybe if I'd read your whole mail first, I wouldn't have redundantly
written this above.

Scott, how would you feel about taking all of this on (i.e., extending
your ra_loader patch to solve all of these problems)? Fine to say no,
of course, just let us know so we can schedule it in that case.
