I'm trying to downgrade subversion to 1.6 from 1.7, doing sudo apt-get install subversion=1.6.17dfsg-3ubuntu3. This does not seem to work.

Any idea on how to do this without breaking half the installation?

What you could try is changing all your entries in /etc/apt/sources.list to precise, like this

deb precise main
deb precise main universe restricted multiverse

then run:

sudo apt-get remove subversion
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install subversion

If the install of subversion 1.6 works out for you, then you'll want to revert your sources.list, and to lock subversion at 1.6 you run echo subversion hold | sudo dpkg --set-selections

This type of installation is not highly recommended, but sometimes it's the easiest option. If it runs into all kinds of crazy conflicts, then you're other best option is to just switch back to Ubuntu 12.04.
