What about naming it client_host, commit_host or something like
that. The host always doesn't have to be remote, and then we
could also record that the commit was from for ra_local
commits so the value is always filled.

For security and debugging purposes, it also may be interesting
to have the client send what it thinks its own IP address is, since
NAT will often times change the IP that the svn server sees.
I don't know if this is too useful.
