We moved all the Plone repositories (including the rather massively
used collective) to Subversion 1.5.6 a while ago. So far there have
been no complaints by anyone. And as Robert noted you can use a
Subversion 1.4 client with a 1.5 server just fine.
I think doing the server upgrade very soon (tm) shouldn't be a problem.
Using relative externals or proper merge history might be something
that shouldn't be required yet, though. Maybe people should be free
and allowed to do this for any package not being part of the ZTK right
away. That might introduce some incentive for those still using
age-old Subversion clients ;)
