The author of Neon knows very well that the svnserve SSL patch is not based
upon Neon. The entire approach to SSL communication between Subversion/SSL
and network is different. Despite this, the first thing he does is to post to
a mailinglist (and just CC me) over stripping copyright from a trivial
function for interopability with dav code that uses Neon, even though I
credit the Neon library. Then he makes more insuations that he can't back up,
but now he appears to retract some of them.

All in all, I feel quite disgusted.
