Hm, isn't considered bad design for clients and servers to
accept/reject one another based solely on version number exchange?

I thought the "best practice" was for client and server to perform
feature negotiation. For example, that's what the http OPTIONS request
is all about. And I suspect that svnserve has something similar, no?
