I think what he means is, remove our workaround for 3.7.7. There
should be almost no installations, and if there are any, they will
get an immediate error message upon svn invocation.

    google:// svn "database schema has changed"

Second hit is http://freebsd.1045724.n5.nabble.com/devel-subversion-svn-Couldn-t-perform-atomic-initialization-svn-database-schema-has-changed-td4541240.html
in which, if you scroll down a bit, someone mentions

    http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/158550

which is a request to update FreeBSD to SQLite 3.7.7.1.

So the tradeoff is the (probably very few) SQLite 3.7.7 installations
out there and how hard it is to find the cause of the error you get,
vs. the complexity of our workaround, which I agree looks kinda ugly.
