Subversion uses the Apache license, while Neon is essensially a LGPL layer on
top of OpenSSL. This was a major reason for not using Neon in my patch, as
well as not introduce an extra library (Neon, in this case). Besides, using a
BIO pair to handle the communication between svnserve/SSL and the network
made implementation much easier.
