The release notes also say that working copies need to be manually upgraded 
with a conversion command. This strikes me as not being suitable for an update 
to an existing release (and this includes F16 now, as we've passed the final 
change deadline) at all. (The conversion also makes the working copies 
incompatible with older releases of Subversion, which totally sucks for users 
of shared home directories, but we can't do anything about that. :-( )

I also think this change might also require changes in various SVN GUI 
frontends, not just kdesvn.
