Good questions.

No, trivial modifications are not the issue. We just didn't want our
response to be verbose, so we left that as a judgement call.
Obviously, if you just tweak some defaults or something, that's still
Subversion. On the other hand, say, SVK is not Subversion, although
it is built on top of Subversion.

It would be nice if there were some way to define automatic rules for
this, but of course that's impossible. Human judgement is the only
way to go, and there's not much point trying to anticipate all the
complexities that might arise. Better to handle them as they come, if
they come.
