Two issues:

  * Our license may be incompatible with the GPL. Or it may not. Even
if it is incompatible, that may change, so this is the small issue.

  * If a GPL library is a required dependency, then people can't build
proprietary products on top of Subversion, and the project wants to
allow that.

(The license issue comes up on the list periodically; anyone should
search for "GPL" in the mailing list archives before adding to this
sub-thread.)
