So what's the status of that "subversion-extras" project? Didn't gstein at
some point reserve a space on google code or something? (can't find it)

I mean, we could probably host it at elego.de or sf.net or anywhere, but it
sure is practical to have one common place that everyone agrees to put
svn-extras in, where all committers have access, etc.

How about /repos/asf/svn-extras/ for that matter? We could just 'svn mv'
contrib over there and be done with it ... ?

admittedly, it certainly is a bit too generic; but to me, it is basically a
hack by some svn devs trying to help svn users sort out a common problem
with mod_dav_svn -- 'svn' mentioned thrice ;)

The fact that mod_setlocale is as generic is more like a coincidence from my
point of view. Then again, it isn't anywhere close to the best way to
address this problem generically. So we just dropped it "anywhere".
