Suppose you write library X, against the Subversion 1.0 API. Then I
write library Y, against the 1.2 API. Now application A comes along
and uses *both* X and Y, passing data structures back and forth
between them.

This would mean that adm_access batons would not be exchangeable in
this way, even though they are the exact same type in both libraries.
I think that would be very difficult to document, and difficult for
people to code around.

So, I am forced to conclude that we can't make such a demand.
