If TSVN 1.7.6 was understandably linked with SVN 1.7.4, why TSVN 1.7.7 linked with SVN 1.7.5
problematic? From where I'm standing, it's perfectly reasonable. In fact, I wouldn't expect
it differently and will probably find a new versioning scheme a tad confusing (at least at
first).

And surely at 1.8.0 you'll sync back, so not only this will auto-correct, but as the third
number is the "patch" number, I personally care little whether or not the patch is a TSVN
one or mainline SVN - I care about the major.minor, and that's perfectly matching.

Just my 2c.
