Without doing research, I don't know if these people are providing
Subversion binary materials. If they're not embedding Subversion
binaries in what they distribute, they are pretty much off the hook. If
they are embedding them, then:

If they provide neon binaries, they need to provide neon source. We
can't eliminate that requirement as long as we're using neon.

If they provide neon binaries statically linked against Subversion
source code, they also need to provide Subversion linkable objects or
Subversion source code. Linking dynamically against neon in our Windows
build system might eliminate that issue, if the downstream distributor
is using our Windows build system or its products.
