If a server admin changes a transaction and the commit came from an old client
then the working copy is potentially broken. If an old client doesn't know
about mergeinfo it doesn't have access to that new feature. New clients lose
awareness of any merges committed by the old clients but neither side is really
broken. You just may be inconvenienced when merging. I think there's a huge
difference there.
