I agree that the one-shared-installation could be a problem. In
theory, it should be fine, but in practice (at least on Windows which
is victim to lots of crap installers) it almost never is. And that
doesn't include any potential crt issues.

I've only looked at the sasl code a bit, but it didn't look like it
would be too hard to patch it to probe relative paths before looking
for the 'default' install or something like that.

Would that work for TSVN or do you have another suggestion?

I think sasl is going to be a great feature and want to help make sure
it works well if I can.
