It looks like a lovely change for 1.8, but am I the only one who thinks we shouldn't back-port this because it isn't
forward-compatible? That is, Subversion 1.7.0 isn't compatible with
configurations created by a user of this patch.
For reference, r1235831's log message is:
> Improve the handling of the ssl-authority-files config option:
> allow leading and trailing whitespace on the filenames to make
> it easier for the user to format the list of files.
Are we willing to break our compatibility guarantees for the sake of this convenience? I've added my veto to the STATUS file pending the outcome of this discussion.
