      Description

      Subversion has a number of configuration files which are consulted by clients
      and servers of all version pedigrees.  The runtime configuration files
      (~/.subversion et al), svnserve config files, and so on.  As we add new options
      to these files, we should be noting which Subversion versions will honor those
      options.
      
      It is not unreasonable to think that my runtime configuration area could have
      been created by a Subversion 1.7 client, but that from time to time I need to
      use a 1.6 client on the same machine.  Users in such situations might be
      confused as to why, when they modify a new-in-1.7 config option (in the file, or
      via the --config-option switch), it seems to have no effect on their 1.6
      client's behavior.
