Yah -- it sounds like whatever Subversion comes up with as a portable
representation for file modes, most of the new code should actually
end up in in APR. Subversion will limit itself to storing and
retrieving those representations as svn properties, and of course to
actually using them to set perms when appropriate (checkout, update).
