Nothing was droppd. The SVN client is just going to have a more
efficient conversation with the server via HTTP when both client and
server are running 1.7.

It sounds like it was obsolete before you started :) But seriously,
nothing has really changed. You can still do this. Note that SVN has
never truly supported DeltaV though, so a generic DeltaV SVN client
may or may not work.

TortoiseSVN uses the SVN client libraries. So it will just have a
more efficient client/server communication. SmartSVN uses SVNKit, so
it will depend on when they choose to adopt the simpler protocol. It
is not like pre-1.7 clients are going to stop working though. All of
the old protocol is still there and supported.
