We use the term "baton" in the codebase to refer to a structure full
of invisible data needed by a function. Some systems call these
closures "context" objects, and in X windows I think they're called
"userdata". We called them "batons" because they're being passed
around a lot. :)

If you or anyone else is planning on writing a new SVN client
application, the *main* API to look at is svn_client.h. This API
refers to batons and `editors' too. You can read about `editors' in
the design document, and also by looking at the svn_delta_edit_fns_t
type in svn_delta.h.
