I'm not sure you can be +0 on something if you think it's a "wise
policy" not to do it. :)

Anyway, your attitude is decidedly unfriendly to upstream maintainers.
How would we feel if we found out that people weren't upgrading from svn
1.3.0 to svn 1.3.1 because Eclipse was only working with svn 1.3.0 due
to a similar policy?

(Blocking neon 0.26.x would be fine, though, since AFAIK Neon does not
have a stable API between minor releases at this time.)
