Oh, I didn't mean that svn1.8 would be unnecessary; I meant that a server
working with git and svn clients would generally be a migrational tool and
wouldn't need to follow svn. I recognise that there are use cases for svn,
I just don't have any around here.

Systemd has the same problem as svn/git. They are not per-user decisions
but need to be made on a more global scale.

...with the problem that a lot of svn uses were decided back when git
wasn't known/available but git would be the proper tool now, were it not
for migration effort. subgit would lower that barrier.
