It is not that my users would notice anything, because I only deliver .Net
assemblies and normal binaries to others...
I'm just afraid this slows down integration of the initial Subversion 1.6

would need upgrading (to fix compilation issues upstream) or local patches
to be compiled against 1.6.
I have no idea how many packages in the common distribution compile against
