I don't have any functions for accessing the version table yet. We
need functions for finding the head version number, and getting and
setting version properties.

Writing to the filesystem is what I'm working on at the moment. I
think it should be working by the end of this week.

(When I started working on writing, I realized that I'd created a
bunch of structure that would be a pain to keep up-to-date in the
presence of transactions, where node contents may change out from
under you. So I'm ripping it all out. One should ask why it was
there in the first place, but hey, the code's getting simpler...)

A program to load up an FS with test data wouldn't be hard to write.
Check out libsvn_fs/skel.h and libsvn_fs/structure; the filesystem
structure is all butt-simple.
