It may well make sense for URLs sent over ra_dav, but I'm not sure
that it makes sense for the client and wc interfaces. It requires us
to know whether things are files or directories.

svn_client_add(... const char *path ...)
svn_wc_add(... const char *path ...)
svn_client_commit(... const char *path ...)

Will the caller of these be required to know whether path is a file or
a directory? What about scheduled for deletion items that are not
physically present?
