Your question is borderline. It is a dev issue, but is not about the
development *of* Subversion, which is the topic of this list. It's a
question about development *with* or *against* Subversion, which is not
on-topic here. However, I don't expect Subversion users would know the
answer, either, so...

Short answer: no, there is no way to guarantee that.
