backwards-compatibility testing!

I've updated the expectations on trunk so that you can cleanly run the
test suite against 1.4.x svnserve or DAV. You do this by adding
SERVER_MINOR_VERSION=4 with make check, or --server-minor-version 4 to
run_tests.py or a specific Python test.

On my machine, all tests do pass (or are properly skipped).

Additionally, you can run 1.4.x tests against 1.5.x servers without
special flags and they should pass (though I think it wasn't until at
least 1.4.6, or possibly HEAD-of-1.4.x-branch, that I tweaked a few
error message expectations to pass).

I highly encourage people testing release candidates to run these
tests; I already today found a serious regression (svnsync couldn't
sync to pre-1.5 servers over ra_svn) from doing this.

I will nominate the appropriate revisions for backport to 1.5.x
tomorrow (it'll probably need a branch). (Lieven, can you deal with
nominating the svnsync changes?)
