Normally, you can expect Subversion to transparently operate across different
mix of client and server versions, but they've made a... change... back in
the days, that made working directories illegible in newer (1.7+) clients.
The 1.7 client has the means of converting 1.6 working directories to a new
format. I'm unsure, if 1.8 still have this ability.
