To be pedantic, this is trunk not branch, so it's CTR. The voting only
applies to merges to the branch, so Julian was quite within this rights
to do what he did.

Please note, this was a prototype hack that never should've gone in in
the first place. My bad, etc.

If, as you suggest, we go and actually fix this to DTRT, we'll delay the
soak for weeks, not days. And as someone noted in another post,
svnversion vs. svn version vs. svn --version is truly weird. So let's
just rip this whole sad story out of the code and come up with a good
design for 1.3 (or even earlier, we can always add commands).
