Perhaps blocking Neon 0.25.0 outright is a little drastic. Is it
possible to simply add a LARGE warning in the configure script if 0.25.0
is found, mentionning the bug and recommending an upgrade?

We have a known workaround for 0.25.0 (disable http compression), so I
think locking it out completely would be going a little too far,
especially for people building on a system where 0.25.0 is the installed
system library and they don't feel like building their own.

Also, should this go into the release notes? Something along the lines
of "There is a bug in Neon 0.25.0 which can make Subversion fail to
operate with WebDAV repositories. We strongly recommend you use a later
version like 0.25.3, or revert to 0.24.7".
