The file format of the entries file has changed in svn 1.4, breaking t.p.versions, thus making twisted not even start up when run from a svn 1.4 directory.
It should use a public API, instead, to get this info. I suggest the svnversion command. And now I can say "I told you so", since, well, I did. :)
Alternatives if you don't like svnversion for some reason are the svn python bindings or svn status -v -N --xml.
