Greg's point is that you don't want to run svn_client_cleanup when
you don't know where the program is. You'd only want to run
svn_client_cleanup at specific places. That means, "set a global
flag, various bits of SVN code, here, there everywhere periodically
checks that flag" - which of course, is silly.

I'd guess arbitrarily running svn_client_cleanup is much more
dangerous than the current behavior. -- justin
