While we're on this subject, I realized this is also probably the
reason test #11 is failing, too.

Test #11 does this:

   * deletes a file, commits.

   * tries to commit a propchange on the (out-of-date) parent dir

Now, we have a rule in the fs_merge() routine that should *prevent*
this commit from working; the test actually expects failure.

In the ra_local case, the merge() routine is able to notice that the
directory is out-of-date. But because ra_dav always commits against
HEAD, the directory will *never* be out-of-date, and thus the commit
always succeeds!

Bleargh.

The "new" planned commit-system isn't going to be able to just ignore
revision numbers coming into the editor (the way ra_dav currently
does). It needs them to check out-of-dateness on dir-props. This is
OK, I think, because our planned system is going to use the revision
numbers for other reasons.
