dav probs

So here's a problem I'm seeing with ra_dav. Hopefully gstein can hand
me a clue about how to fix it.

 * The repository-diff editor is trying to get the svn_node_kind
   of a particular (revision, path) pair in the repository. It calls
   RA->check_path() to do this. This function takes the (rev, path)
   pair as input.

    * ra_dav's implementation of this function is straightforward: it
      tacks the path onto the ra-session's url, to get a new url.
      then it passes the new url and revnum to get_baseline_info()

       * get_baseline_info is being dumb. the very first thing it
         does is call get_props_resource(), which calls get_props().
         The "dumbness" here is that the revnum is being completely
         ignored; the path may not exist at all in the head!

And in fact, that's exactly what I'm running into. get_baseline_info
is currently unable to get any information about a path unless it
exists in HEAD already. I get an instant 404 error.

My memory tells me that this topic has come up before. Gstein, is
there a Right Way for me to fix get_baseline_info?
