Well, even debian-stable has subversion 1.5. (1.4 is in old-stable, but there's an 1.5
backport as well).

So, from my POV it wouldn't be necessary ... but if you write the code anyway, just put
it in an #ifdef with an autoconf check, and we're done everywhere.

It doesn't hurt if the same package compiles everywhere, without external patches.

Phil
