Well, this clearly explains why we're unable to do an ra_local
checkout of /trunk, or even a single 'svnadmin dump' of a full
revision. Both of those tasks are being *very* anal about clearing
and re-using pools; there's no reason they should run out of memory.

We absolutely need to fix the pool code and make it aggressive about
re-using memory. SVN can't function otherwise.

If the httpd project requires time optimization over space, that's
fine; just have httpd avoid calls to apr_pool_clear()! Wouldn't that
be enough?
