If you use http: or svn:, then there are no problems with the client and
server being different versions (in either direction).

I use 1.5.1 most places, but I can't get it to compile on Ubuntu (7.10 or
8.04) so I just stuck with the 1.4.6 that is bundled with it. No problems
at all. I've served the repos with 1.5.1 (from a slackware distro and from
Windows, they are now served with 1.4.6 on Ubuntu with no problems.
