Oops, sorry, I misunderstood what the new API was supposed to do. "clear"
sounds like it might mean "clear all". I think the name
"svn_config_delete_auth_data" better explains the functionality.

However, you shouldn't need an API like this for cleaning up testing
environments, because testing environments should be using a private config
area which can be totally removed anyway.

So, in conclusion, this API makes sense conceptually, but your reason for
wanting it does not.
I've no problem with adding the API if there is a known practical use for
it, but I don't know of one at present.

Max.
