BDB-4.4 and automatic database recovery

As some of you may know, Berkeley DB 4.4 adds support for automatic
recovery of wedged repositories. This feature was added to BDB
specifically with Subversion in mind.

For the past several weeks, I've been adding support for BDB-4.4 and
automatic recovery on the bdb-fixes branch. This work (sponsored by
Sleepycat) is now 99% done. You can test it by switching the
libsvn_fs_base directory to this branch -- all changes are localised there.

In the next several days, I'll make some final changes, then, if nobody
objects, merge this branch to trunk and propose it for inclusion into
svn-1.3.1. I submit that this is not a new feature, but is essentially a
bugfix for all those wedged-repository bugs we've seen, and is therefore
a valid candidate for a patch release. There are of course no API
changes involved.

BTW, is issue 2449, and fixing it will produce minor collateral damage
by incidentally closing issues 688, 739 and 2019.
