I was able to dig up the message about the dirent issue. If we had
searchable mailing list archives on subversion.tigris.org, I might be
able to dig up more on the server layer issue. :-) Oh well.

| You just asked the question that broke the camel's back, so to
| speak. :-)
| We knew that dirent properties are only meaningful if Subversion
| supports hard links. Supporting them raises a number of thorny
| issues, of which XML representation is only one, and it's not clear
| that anyone is really clamoring for them, especially given that
| Subversion will support symlinks just fine. Some developers (Greg
| Stein is one, if I remember correctly), long ago advocated just
| getting rid of the hard links.
| So, unless anyone thinks this a wildly bad thing (which I doubt),
| let's just punt the hard link support for now.
| Whic means the change_dirent_prop() editor callback goes away, so you
| simply don't have to implement it. I'll get rid of it everywhere else
| in the code, you just get rid of it in xml.c.
| Sound okay?,
