I have two comments on this.

1) Most of the cruft removal is related to SVN_NEON_0_26, not 0_27.
   Therefore it may be better to just remove support for 0.25, rather
   than both 0.25 and 0.26. I note that current Debian stable (4.0)
   still uses 0.26. Yes, we have a well-earned reputation for
   infrequent stable releases, but a lot of people use it. (Also,
   Debian 5.0 is scheduled for Real Soon Now, but I expect there will
   be people who want to deploy 1.6.0 on Debian 4.0.)

2) The neon API and code has stabilized enough over the years that we
   can probably drop the exact version matching of NEON_ALLOWED_LIST.
   This has always been a pain, the list gets outdated every time Joe
   pushes out 0.xx.y+1, and we only list 0.xx.0 to 0.xx.y.
