svn:custom: gone?

Gstein, I'm confused about the state of our DAV layer.

Once upon a time, we used to marshall svn: and svn:custom: props from
server to client. It seems we're not doing that anymore. Notice
this line from the body response to a PROPFIND of <allprops/>:

<D:response xmlns:S="svn:"

If you grep through the whole response, the "C:" namespace isn't used
at all anymore! User-defined props like 'svn:ignore' are marshalled
as <S:ignore>, and server-defined props are marshalled as

Of course, this is useless to my RA->get_dir() routine. It sees both
of these properties as existing in the same 'svn:' namespace. (Why
the heck are we defining the 'svn:' namespace *twice* now?)

ra_dav->get_dir() is simply trying to figure out if the resource has
any user-defined props, and now it can't tell them apart from
svn-specific liveprops anymore. :-(

Can you address any of these issues? Tell me what happened? Give me
a suggested remedy?
