All 1.x clients and servers are compatible via the RA layer. Some
features may be disabled when using versions that are too far
different (e.g. merge tracking won't work properly with a 1.3 server
and 1.6 client, but you can still commit your changes).

If multiple clients are accessing a single working copy, they must all
be the same version (1.6.x, 1.5.x, etc.). If a newer client touches
the WC, the data format will be upgraded automatically and older
clients will no longer work.
