Well, sure I could try and use GnuTLS instead of OpenSSL. But the
Windows binaries of Subversion are built with OpenSSL, and that means
the apache module is too. Which means users *can* use SSLv2.0. It would
be a regression if TSVN would suddenly not connect to a https based
repository anymore which it would previously.
