The svn_ prefix is *fine* for static functions. Just because the function is
static doesn't mean it won't conflict with things that you #include'd. When
I'm feeling particularly obstinate, I prefix all the static functions. For
example, see mod_dav_svn or mod_dav.

The problem was very much in evidence when people had some local functions
named open() and remove(). Bad bad. Yes, those are obviously ripe for
conflict, but what about close_item() ? Can you be sure?

So... I'd say that you can leave the prefix if you want. Call it a
file-local convention.
