Question on client / working copy compatibility

Hi all,

I have a question concerning working with an older client on a newer -
or upgraded - working copy. Specifically, I'd like to now, if there is
a call in the SVN API that I could use to find out, if the client I'm
using and the working copy I'm working on, are compatible?

An example: SVN working copy versions 1.4 and 1.5 are incompatible. If
you touched your 1.4.x working copy with a 1.5.x client, the working
copy gets upgraded implicitly - all OK. But, if you now tried to
operate on the same working copy with a 1.4.x client again, you would
be told that you need to update your client (or downgrade your working
copy) to ensure compatibility. Question is, if and how I could this
detect upfront - if client and working copy format are compatible or

Thanks a lot for your help,
