It looks like the issue can only be triggered in commit paths in SVN,
not checkout paths, so: if you could be persuaded to make a commit to a
malicious server, said server could arrange for arbitrary code to be
executed on the client.

neon 0.24.5, which includes the fix for CAN-2004-0179, is bundled in
Subversion 1.0.2.
