We are just doing the best we can with the resources we have. The problem
is that this Subversion 1.4 working copy change cuts both ways. If I put
out a new release a lot of people are going to get it via automatic
updates. That process does not notify them of the working copy change and
they may have reasons to not want that, or at least not be surprised by
it. And JavaSVN not supporting 1.4 complicates this even further. It is
all just a big mess that I do not need.

On Linux and OS X, the binaries are not provided by us anyway, so users
are free to install the version they want. On Windows, getting the 1.4
binaries is very easy to do for someone that wants them.

I will definitely not do a 1.4 release for 1.0.x without JavaSVN.

Perhaps, although 1.0 - 1.3 all had the same format.

Because how many people do you think do what you are doing? If you are
setup to do that, then by all means do so. All you need to update is that
Win32 fragment.
