While maybe this be true, it's utterly confusing: if I have 2 systems,
one of which is at 1.3 (and acting as the server), there's no chance
the created repository won't be accessible with the server, since both
svnadmin and the server software are the same version. The other
acting as a client (at 1.4 Subversion) won't have anything to do with
repository creation and will benefit from all working copy
optimizations in the 1.4 version.

At least, the above was the assumption with which I answered the
question the way I did.
