Header files which "include the world" suck. We threw out that concept in
the early stages of SVN development.

I don't like this. This "fun little hack" is going to grow into a full scale
app when we're not looking. "Just one more feature". A year later, and we've
completely reimplemented what cadaver does for us today.

In the interest of moving to more client-side administration, and away from
server-side "operate on a local FS", I'd say let's *not* include
functionality like this. Let's depend on standard WebDAV tools for exploring
the repository.
