I'd like to undo this distinction :-).

We chose to use Neon. No one forced us to. This is a bug in SVN. It
may be that our *fix* is to patch Neon (I assume Joe Orton would
welcome such a patch), but that's an implementation detail.

If the bug were truly due to circumstances beyond Subversion's
control, such as the operating system failing to deliver signals
reliably, that would be different. This isn't like that.

Ronan Meneu, my earlier response was misleading:

I forgot that we had rewritten checkouts and updates to pipe all the
data in one stream. So the uninterruptable circumstances are not
exceptional, unfortunately.
