Thanks, Lieven. This is great and much needed info. I've taken the
liberty to commit it to the site, with some small tweaks:

- Corrected the id of the section to match the named anchor.

- Tweaked the part "For the user ..." to say that "auto" will use
skelta mode with a 1.8 server *unless it has SVNAllowBulkUpdates set
to Prefer*.

- Tweaked the notice about setting SVNAllowBulkUpdates to say *For 1.8
servers ...*.

If needed, further tweaks / fixes can be made while it's already live
on the site.

One possible addition that comes to mind (but I'll leave it to someone
else to write this -- it's already past 3 am here :-)): an additional
benefit of skelta mode is the client-side optimization of not
requesting pristines that are already in the pristine store (very
powerful when using 'switch', or when having multiple branches checked
out in a sparse working copy). But when adding that, the "notice"
suggesting to use "Prefer" if there is no intermediate caching server,
is no longer accurate (unless you see this client-side optimization as
just another caching server :-)).
