We can't really refuse to start because we have JavaSVN which will always
work in some manner.

What I did in the most recent release is I added some intelligence to the
loading of the JavaHL adapter to make sure I have a library with the valid
version. Ideally, JavaHL would have a method added to return its version.
 Anyway, if I load a pre JavaHL 1.2 library then the JavaHL adapter is not
available which causes Subclipse to switch to JavaSVN.

I intend to do the same thing with 1.3. I will probably call the new
method to get the Admin directory and if it tosses an exception not allow
the adapter to be available.
