I was under the impression that the on-disk format changed between 4.1
and 4.2. If that's correct, I would say a reason not to force people to
upgrade Berkeley for their own good is that there can be quite a few
programs on the system beyond apache/subversion thst use it and you may
not want to recompile them all just to evaluate how subversion will
improve your life over CVS.
