I did, only after I manually pulled down the distribution from CPAN and
tried to dig through why it started to fail.   UPDATING.pod is...not the
usual place to put things. Especially notes about "updating from CPAN
will break all your live installs and you'll have to manually frob the
config."  Usually, that's a mandatory-prompt question on install. But
far better would be to bullet proof things to not hurt poor unsuspecting

It'd be really wonderful if updating SVN::Web didn't break deployed
installs in the future. It's...not a pleasant experience.
