Oy, oy, let's please not jump on Geoff :-).

I found his tone a bit blunt too, but his basic philosophy I agree
with. We, the Subversion developers, chose Subversion's dependencies.
A bug in a dependency that causes a bug in Subversion therefore falls
within our purview, if we want it to.

However, we can certainly choose to ignore it, as Geoff himself said,
and that's exactly what we're doing here. I have no problem with
that, and -- talk of "responsibility" notwithstanding -- Geoff clearly
has no problem with it either.
