Thats, why. I want to _not_ break my system.

However, I want to install subversion.
Plus, I don't want to install perl nor python with all their deps.

libsvn0 depends on both for sake of libsvn_swig_perl-1.so.0.0.0 and
libsvn_swig_perl-1.so.0.0.0, it contains.
Those are only needed to use subversion from either perl or python skripts.

So obviously I wouldn't break anything by installing subversion while
ignoring it's dependency on perl/python, as long as I don't use those.
Remains that problem: How to do that _without_ breaking packet management?

I'm aware of that, but thats not my point, as I already mentioned earlier in
this threat.

Neither this is, what it's all about.

Sorry, but I'm little tired of hearing "don't do that, its not like it's to
be done" answers, when I ask _how_ (not _if_)to do, what I want to do for my
own very good reasons and after well considering all implications.

Anyways, Thanx for all your kind answers. Keep the fire burning...
