I have raised this before, Julian. For making changes with some
impact, where feedback from the community is desired, then the
standard Apache rule is 72 hours. And even if we don't worry about
rules, it is simply *respectful* to give others a chance to speak up.

Last time, you bumped the format with something like FOUR hours
notice. That was really bad. I'm not sure about the extent of the
badness here (tho changing something as central as svn_types.h seems
pretty obvious as an "input-required" change), but given that another
member of the community has said "woah. too quick", then you REALLY
need to slow down.

This isn't an attempt to slow down your work. This is an attempt
(bordering on requirement) for you to work with the rest of the
community on changes to our codebase.
