      Description

      This thread describes the problem:
      
      http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?listName=dev&msgNo=130643
      
      In summary, we've introduced several new pieces of WC meta data in the entries
      file for Subversion 1.5, including the following fields:
      - changelist
      - keep-local
      - depth
      
      The first two fields -- if present -- would experience data loss when a 1.4
      client is used on a WC written by a 1.5 client.  The depth field (and its
      usage's impact on a WC), however, will actually "corrupt" a WC for 1.4 client.
