RA needed a bump function because ra_dav didn't need to track the items in
memory(*). At some point, however, we added the tracking to ra_dav. Thus,
all RA implementations are tracking; thus, we can now move the bump handling
outside of RA.

Of course, this *does* mean we have to accept the reality of buffering all
of that data in memory, in the client.


(*) ra_dav had the server tell it what was actually changed in the commit,
    which meant that the client didn't have to record it. however, the
    server included bubbled-up directories in its change list. if we omitted
    the bubble-up changes from the server's response, then we could remove
    the tracking in ra_dav. this latter algorithm is my favored approach.
