RE: scheduling, and gui clients (Win, Mac)

Speaking of GUI clients, I didn't seem to notice any in-progress
notification callbacks in svn_ra.h, or svn_wc.h which are generally a good
thing for robust GUI client/server apps.

If people are seriously thinking about how to architect the GUI client apps,
then this is an important consideration to at least think about up front.

Additionally, you don't want to fall prey to the Outlook problem:
* GUI app has only one thread, instead of at least one thread for UI work,
and another for client/server communication
* Server hangs, times out, whatever

Result:
* GUI app doesn't redraw at all, can't cancel/abort current operation,
etc...

Alternatively, maybe I haven't been paying attention closely enough, in
which case, please accept my humble apologies....
