It sounds like args_to_target_array should take a path style. Sometimes the
args are URLs, and sometimes they are paths.

Hmm... actually, they can be mixed. Oh, agony. Consider this on Windows:

C:\> svn import http://example.com/repos/test C:\src\test

IMO, args_to_target_array should *not* canonicalize the arguments. That
should be deferred to where we know what style those arguments are. In this
case, the first arg is url_style and the second arg is local_style.

Good find!

It is a *relative* URL. Thus, it is quite a valid URL, and should continue
to be url_style.

Everything in ra_dav is URL-based. There is nothing in there that should
manipulate local paths.

(temp file issues aside, but paths aren't exposed by that, so we're still
