Patches welcome? ;-)

Seriously, there is a necessary tension between:

a) being flexible with versions of packages you depend on;
b) being trusting that the packages you depend on won't break your code
when they make a new release.

If I'm not way off base, libsvn_ra_dav is _highly_ dependent on the
operation of the Neon library, just as the whole project is with APR.
Having specific, tested versions is the more conservative policy and
probably is a wise one as well. Users have a way to ignore the
limitations if they so choose.

That said, I'm +0 on changing the regex to something more relaxed.
