I'm a little confused by this claim. FILE * is extremely portable; not
only is it in ANSI C, but it's also in K&R C. There have been some
historical stdio bugs, but none I know of which would actually affect
Subversion.

(Likewise, system() is part of ANSI C, so is also quite portable, but is
worth ignoring for other reasons.)
