I'm missing something. Your argument as I understand it is: The svn
client is broken, because it isn't handling redirects. But, don't
document the work-around, because that is for broken clients, and we can
fix our client.

I agree that the client can be fixed, but this needs to be documented in
the meantime. I am more than happy to do the fix, it will probably be a
few days before I have the time to do it though. If the work-around goes
in now, you will save some new users a big hassle. When the client is
fixed, remove the work-around from the docs. If the work-around is never
published, then GREAT, but I thought you were trying to do a release later
this week. If you are, then this needs to be a part of the docs, or new
users will have problems, especially since I don't believe this
work-around can be found in httpd-2.0 docs either. I only found it
because I read the Apache source.
