This would actually be a relatively easy change.

Right now, there's a single svn_client.h routine --
'svn_client_authenticate()' -- which ends up returning an
authenticated session object to a repository. Every libsvn_client
routine calls this function, accesses the RA vtable, then closes the

Instead, we could change all the libsvn_client routines to *take* a
a session object, and leave it untouched. It would then be the
responsibility of the libsvn_client caller (the application) to create
and destroy the session object. It means a little more code in our
command-line client to do this. But not a huge deal.
