FSFS works on svn 1.1.3 (which is what's on wolfwood now). However,  
there have been quite a few improvements since  then (like better  
binary diff algorithm), and it really would be nice to have svn 1.4  
so that we can use svnsync. I've successfully compiled it from source  
(~foom/svn14-install), but I don't think I'll be able to make a  
working debian package since there seem to be a large number of  
differences between the 1.1.3 debian packaging and 1.4 debian  
packaging, and the 1.4 debian packaging doesn't stand a chance of  
working on woody. If we're okay with installing in /usr/local, it  
should be fine.
