Kevin, I think we all agree there.

The question is, what is less painful:

* Users who never use non-default depths being able to use both
  versions simultaneously and invisibly, but use of depth may
  surprisingly trigger an upgrade months after you first upgraded svn.

* Nobody is able to mix 1.4 and 1.5 clients in the same working
  directory, but this becomes obvious as soon as you try to use both,
  no matter whether or not --depth has been used.
