Where did you see that? I never heard about problematic implementations
of SRV. And about the widelyness, I know Windows 2000 uses SRV records
everytime it can... The SRV implementation is also in the TODO list of
projects like KDE and Mozilla, and there's already some SRV code in the

I don't see why /one/ implementation, limited because designed to be
very simple, should prevent anyone to use SRV records...

And the only real limitation of libsrv is when you use it for a server.
As a client library, it seems to me it would be perfect for SVN.
Server-side, you don't need an SRV library. Just take the ports to
listen to in the server's configuration.

And if you still don't want to hear anything about libsrv, feel free to
use another library, or write your own piece of code dealing with SRV
