I'm mainly looking to avoid a situation where neon 0.26.2 gets released,
and people have to use --disable-neon-version-check until we get a patch
release of Subversion out that validates it.

That just seems overly messy. It would be bad for people to habituate to
using --disable-neon-version-check as a matter of course.
