Libsvn_ra_dav doesn't touch the filesystem API at all; it's on the wrong
side of the network connection, with mod_dav_svn on the other side.

Libsvn_ra_local and mod_dav_svn should share the bits for accessing the
filesystem. Maybe mod_dav_svn could live on top of libsvn_ra_local once
it's implemented, and ra_local would become the "real" public filesystem
API. Whether that makes sense for mod_dav_svn, I have no idea; GregS can
answer that one, no doubt.

Decoupling mod_dav_svn from libsvn_fs would be practical, too. :-)
