Delivering the Subversion OSX Universal binary as a Framework

Hi All,
        What do you think about me switching the packaging around for
Subversion on OSX? (http://www.collab.net/downloads/community/) What
I'd like to do is deliver Subversion as an Umbrella Framework
(http://tinyurl.com/OSX-Framework-Anatomy) where each Subversion dep
is its own nested Framework. Below is a small list of benefits:

* Multiple versions of Subversion coexisting on the same box
* The ability to build Subversion-based apps
* Potentially smaller installation packages after the initial
installer with dependencies is installed
* Less obtrusive to Subversion's developers

Now, the packaging of the binary and the functionality of the binary
would not change. This would be seamless to the end user other than
the ability to have multiple versions of Subversion installed at the
same time. What do you guys think?

Take care,
Jeremy Whitlock
