Good point. I interpreted the question as "what do I need to know to
use Subversion right now" vs. post 1.0, since 1.0 seems to be rather
distant (several months away at best). And since my mind has trouble
dealing with time frames any further away than the next cup of
coffee, this seemed like a safe answer for now ;)
