Find out the version of the repository server

First a little background why I need to find out the version of the
repository server. Maybe you guys know another way to do what I want
without knowing the version?

Subversion 1.2 introduces svn_client_log2() which takes a 'limit'
parameter. That's great. But, if you call that function with a < 1.2
server, the server returns *all* revisions and the client just drops the
ones not asked for. That can be *very* slow for many revisions.
So, I'd like to somehow check if the 'limit' option works as it does
with 1.2 servers and if not, just use svn_client_log2() without the
limit param. To limit the revisions fetched, I could then adjust the
revision range accordingly.

Sure, I could always adjust the revision range to avoid the problems
with < 1.2 servers, but then I might not get any log messages back if in
the range I specify no changes to that path/URL happened - that's why
I'd like to use the 'limit' param if possible.
