Oh, stop with the personal attacks. It's not warranted.

I think your proposal does not provide a guide to third-party developers as to
what has changed from one SVN release to another. Therefore, I think our
versioning rules must apply to the *entire* SVN tree not a particular library.

I don't think that placing the versioning only at the library level is going
to work. It'll be too confusing for applications to have to say, "Subversion
1.1 has libsvn_wc 2.5, libsvn_repos 9.6, libsvn_ra 3.9." I've yet to be
convinced that your proposal is helpful to any third-parties or users. --
