Oh... <looking.../> yes... it appears I fell down by trusting my memory,
and you speak the truth. My apologies.

I'll re-code that "svn_propset" test function I wrote to avoid
Python-2.4 features, unless you beat me to it. I think that single thing
accounts for the blame_tests and log_tests and merge_authz_tests
failures.

That commit_tests 28 failure looks like a result of my merging the
double-delete branch back to trunk in r32901. I hadn't paid it much
attention because it was only this build-bot reporting a failure, but
now I see that this is the only one running tests over HTTP. So I'll fix
this too (by making it XFail).

That seems reasonable now. Maybe it would be good for build bots to run
the oldest version (of dependencies) that we claim to support!
