That's my fear :-)

Actually, it appears that we still use the returned list. If a returned item
is in the hash, then it gets bumped. Otherwise, we look in the hash for a
parent of the returned item, which has a 'recursion' flag set on it.
Oh... and wait a second. We also tweak some WC props in there. Thus, ra_dav
is still going to need access to the list of committed targets, and it will
still be doing some work. If the commit driver wants to do the bump *after*
the close_edit() returns, then things should be fine (and we can remove the
call to the bump_func from ra_dav).
I'd still prefer if the server just returned non-bubble directories and we
drove the bump/wcprop stuff from that, rather than keeping a big, mother
list in memory. But hey, if the client is going to generate it in the first
place to deal with disjoint WCs, then the RA layers definitely shouldn't be
building a duplicate.
(it just needs to be determined whether they truly are duplicates; if not,
then what differences can be ironed out to bring them into alignment)
