Its not about grabbing; its about recompiling.
If you upgrade svn, you would have to recompiler ALL applications
using the svn lib.

And under windows there is no user compiling the applications
he is using by himself ;-)
And also under Linux more and more users install packages without
compiling by themself.

In other words, for windows users and such linux users,
in practise this would mean that different svn versions
are completely incompatible:
If there is a new svn version (e.g. a minor bugfix),
then they have to wait util ALL applications using svn
they are using provide a new binary package, too.
