It's noted, but, as others have mentioned, binary/source compatibility
is a very strong concern for Subversion.

Since is still going to be up (at least as a
pointer, if not in some stronger form), I think we're fine for folks
who want documentation or references well after Subversion is an
official ASF project.

As Hyrum suggests, we can use org.apache.subversion.* if we want to
create a new (better) Java interface within our versioning rules - but
that isn't necessary nor should it be a pre-req for graduation.

Thanks.  -- justin
