 From this line up to the end, you answer to the wrong place. ;-)
So I'm free to stay here for my answer.
BTW.: Some time ago I had same problem and I got perfect answer here,
But I don't remember the date of the post, and I wasn't able to find it
when searching in this list's archive.

1. subversion client says: "This client is too old to work with working
copy ..." (Didn't I post this before?)
2. helping a colleague, who has tool where svn client is build in, but
doesn't know version. If I could get this info from one of his "entries"
files, I could inform him, which version alternative client must have to
use in parallel, without destroying usage by the existing tool.

Of course, I can use most highest svn version, but after that, ths wc
will be corrupt for clients with lower version.
