Why not? Ideally the keyring store would kick in if the necessary
support is detected at runtime. It seems like a shame to have two
different svn executables, e.g., one for UI-less ubuntu-server and one
for ubuntu-desktop.

For example, the Windows CryptoAPI-based password store is always
compiled in, but checks for CrytoAPI presence at runtime, so you don't
need a specially compiled svn.exe for, e.g., Win98 (and all gods help
anyone who's still using that).
