DB files will be compatible, but it is a bad idea to mix different binary
distributions of subversion. There are several different C runtime library
versions on Windows, and having some svn dlls/exes using one and other
dlls/exes using another could cause subtle and obscure problems.

(Oh, and just replacing svn.exe will *NOT* work)
