I don't think svn does any signal handling at all. This means
that the "local" repository access method will pretty much *always*
leave a mutex held if the client is interrupted with ^C.

We could add a SIGINT handler, but SIGKILL would still leave the
repository hung. It seems to me that we need to get the
auto-recover code working correctly in order to fix the SIGKILL
case. That would also fix the SIGINT case, I think, so then
we wouldn't really need the SIGINT handler at all.

Does this make sense? i.e., should we just focus on getting
the call-sequence right for auto-recovery?
