*If* all its dependencies are ready in testing by its release date and
the maintainer acts reasonably quickly to get subversion 1.0 packages
into unstable, it seems plausible that it could be a late addition to
sarge, since it's new and high-profile. Of course, I'm biased, since I
don't want to try to maintain subversion-sarge packages in the same way
I've been maintaining subversion-woody packages. :-)

Any opinions from -release?
