Yes that is talking about the client side. The main issue is that on OS
other than Windows the user has to provide the Subversion libraries and they
need to provide the version we work with. The Subversion client does all
the work of talking to a server and the compatibility rules for Subversion
are that any 1.x client can talk to any 1.x server.
