Cuz the ra_dav behavior is broken? :-)

Per my previous mail, it is returning an svndiff when it should be returning
a full text. To return a full text, it needs a new callback to get the
"delta base fulltext" to apply the incoming svndiff against.

Right. We fix ra_dav then, so that get_file can operate the same across the
various RA layers.
