OK, I'd like to poll the developers and users:

Is it important enough to have Subversion use the perl bindings on RedHat
7.3? If so it sounds like RedHat 7.3 users will have to upgrade their
perl to perl latest (or at least 5.8.0) from the current version of 5.6.1
or even perl-5.6.0.X.

Any other options? That's a pretty big change (maybe for the better, but
I don't know enough about it to evaluate backwards compatability issues
for Perl).

Poll Question: Should I put the perl 5.8.0 requirement into the RedHat 7.3
Subversion RPMs? (I'll have to build latest version of perl and distribute
it.)

I've currently got a patch that builds on RedHat 9 and should work on
RedHat 7.3 (once I rebuild perl) that generates a subversion-perl RPM.

   Thanks!
