Isn't it more accurate that building from tarball doesn't require Python
but building from a working copy (whether from branches/tags or trunk) does?

In that case I would change the note to two boxes or two paragraphs in one
box:

[[[

Note that Subversion does not require Python for its basic operation. In
general, if you are not using Subversion's SWIG Python bindings, automated
test suite, or other Python-coded tools that ship with Subversion, this
change does not affect you.

Note about building Subversion: Building from a distribution tarball does
not require Python, but building from a checked out source working copy
does.

Thoughts?
