Frederic got no reply to his questions on the list (unless I missed it).

So, will there be peg versions of more functions in 1.2?
Is there already an issue filed?

This sort of question comes up fairly regularly on the TSVN list, and at
the moment we can't give any answer except "It's a problem in
Subversion". It would be nice to be able to say that it is on the
roadmap for fixing. Even nicer to say it will be in the upcoming 1.2
release :-)
