Given the famously slow Debian release cycle ... it'd be nice if I
could rely on smooth upgrades at least from N to N+2. (This thread is
really about N to N+5, I don't think Debian needs _that_.) Our most
recent release involved upgrading Subversion 1.4.2 -> 1.5.1, but before
that I think our release cycle skipped over 1.3.x entirely, and before
that I think we skipped over 1.0.x. And I expect the next release will
skip over 1.6.x, unless either Subversion has an uncharacteristically
slow cycle or Debian has an uncharacteristically fast one.
