      Description

      svn, version 1.7.5 (r1336830)
      
      Could error message E155021 be extended please to include the format code that 
      is supported.
      
      svn: E155021: This client is too old to work with the working copy at
      '/cygdrive/c/ws/shared_ws/dev_code' (format 31).
      You need to get a newer Subversion client. For more details, see
        http://subversion.apache.org/faq.html#working-copy-format-change
      
      
      e.g. could it be changed to:
      
      svn: E155021: This client supports (format 28) and is therefore too old to work 
      with the working copy at '/cygdrive/c/ws/shared_ws/dev_code' (format 31).
      
      
      This is useful to know, because we have various different applications which 
      checkout in svn format (cygwin svn, Hudson, Jenkins, TortoiseSVN) and are 
      suffering from incompatibility.
      
      Of course, what would be even better if client formats were backwards 
      compatible, and tools forward compatible. Like audio codecs are.
