Yes, commits are different. My test wc has 420 files, if I modify
them all then a commit typically takes

$ time svn ci wc -m "" > /dev/null

real 0m19.691s
user 0m4.293s
sys 0m2.618s

After a switch it typically takes

$ time svn ci wc -m "" > /dev/null

real 0m31.503s
user 0m7.358s
sys 0m3.113s

So that about 50% slower but I think the correctness arguments justify
that regression.

Perhaps it would be possible to detect a 1.2 server and have the
client conditionally request the resource walk?
