Evidence of a potential user, but one who appears to have not yet
tried to compile APR, let alone Subversion. What about neon, or db4,
you will need at least one of those, do they work? Looks like a
hypothetical problem so far :-)

I'm not trying to make life hard for you, I'm making it better. The
current path library's use of ".", which is distributed over the file,
will be factored into two macros and so be easier to change. You may
want to look at svn_cl__push_implicit_dot_target as well...

However, as I said in an earlier mail, we cannot use "" at present.
If someone wants to fix APR, or wrap all Subversion's APR calls, they
can do it. My priority is the systems I use, which happen to run
Subversion *now*.
