Re: [Patch] Make svn_tristate_t compatible with svn_boolean_t

I would +1 everything you said... if Julian had changed svn_boolean_t.

He changed svn_tristate_t, which is used exactly once in trunk, so
I don't see the need to be as careful with it.

The caveat? This assumes that --- as we ought to --- we not act on
feedback differently because it comes after the change has been
committed. Feedback that would have caused a "No, let's not commit this
yet" reaction if provided early should cause a "OK, let's revert this
for now then" reaction if provided later.
