Honestly, it seems like complete FUD to me and trying to save face or just be obstinate.

FWIW, I agree with Stefan on all of this.  We should not be doing abort from a library.  Whether
TSVN could do more to avoid it seems like a separate issue.  I do not see why the library
cannot just return a useful error and allow the caller to handle it.
