Well, obviously that's not the case ;-) I have only worked at this client
for 4 days. What I have gleaned from speaking with people here is that
they wanted to upgrade their server to 1.4, but they had problems
getting mod_dav_svn to work with 1.4. So they left the server at 1.3, but
didn't remove the 1.4 stuff. By default, svnadmin picks up the 1.4 version.
