The log should be about the change. Commentary can go elsewhere :-)

This patch is awfully big. Break it down into the distinct parts. One patch
for the trace editor. One to intro the cancellation. etc.

Again, not relevant for a log msg.

trace-update wasn't moved, so the file move in the .dsp shouldn't there.

Please make this a separate patch. It is hard to review with a rename *and*
functional changes in the same patch. If you do a rename *only*, then you
can check in the rename with a message describing the rename and saying "no
functional change." Further patches can do the functional change, and
they'll be much easier to review.

I'll review the bulk of the patch after it has been busted up into pieces.

One note: the cancel editor is horrifically repetitive. Write a single
function to take the cancel_baton and make the call to check for cancelling
and returning the appropriate error. Each of the editor functions would look
something like:

some_function(void *baton, ...)
{
  return check_cancel(baton);
}

And:

static svn_error_t *check_cancel(cancel_baton *cb)
{
  if (cb->should_i_cancel(cb->inner_baton))
    return ...
  return SVN_NO_ERROR;
}

The editor functions are really simple. Not even a need for a local since
the void* simply auto-casts to a cancel_baton as it is passed to
check_cancel.

1) that should be const svn_string_t *, or just const char *. No need for a
   darned stringbuf.

2) use fwrite if you have a string(buf), since you already have the length.
