Yeah, I *think* using the "is_svn_client" flag is acceptable. I can't
remember now how much weight we attributed to that flag (which is set based
on a grep of the User-Agent string). The downside here is that if there
happens to be a Subversion client that doesn't report itself as such in this
way, it will presumably run into the same sorts of issues we've already
discussed. But I know of no such client, and maybe we as a community are
willing to say, "Look, if you are to be a well-behaved Subversion client,
you've gotta slap those four characters "SVN/" in your User-Agent header value.
