Please whack it into whatever shape that you'd like. I haven't applied my
brain to it yet, so I have no preconceived notions of what it should look
like.

So... I'd say for you to just bang out the API that you're thinking of, and
then I'll poke at it in a second pass as I work on the code.

You should be able to get a good idea of what it needs to look like if you
break the XML file handling out of libsvn_client and move it into
libsvn_ra_xml.
[ basically, whoever builds a "real" RA layer will be the first to flesh out
  svn_ra.h ]

Even if you don't split out a libsvn_ra_xml, you can use libsvn_client as a
guide, based on where/when/how it does the XML stuff.

Cheers,
