Refreshing neon is of course, not a problem.

However, there is another potential problem.

Neon is still in development, and breaks API compat fairly regularly. I
was planning to move from neon 0.24.x to 0.25.x soon (an API break).

When I do, of course a _runtime_ compat package will remain, but after
investigation, I found that it would require quite a lot of work to make
it possible for multiple versions of development versions of neon to
co-exist - so I hadn't been planning on doing that.

This isn't a problem, so long as all client applications are actively
maintained, and get updated reasonably promptly to compile against new
upstream neon versions, but cadaver hasn't had a release in over a year.

I couldn't find conclusive information on whether the current cadaver
release is compatible with 0.25.x - do you happen to know?

Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (Cygwin)
