According to the Hacker's Guide:


    "When the major number changes, all bets are off."

So I would expect this to not be a problem from one minor release
to the next, but for a minor release change I see a case on one
machine where my client is too old to talk to my server.

    client$ svn --version
    svn, version 1.1.4 (r13838)
       compiled Feb 6 2006, 16:31:47

    client$ svn ls
    svn: This client is too old to work with working copy ''; please get a newer Subversion client

    server$ svn --version
    svn, version 1.4.3 (r23084)
       compiled Mar 28 2007, 22:48:32

Granted, I didn't read the whole section, and I'm not too worried
about it in this case, but it is somewhat surprising.
