i'm leaning towards having the client call svn_async_clear, since
otherwise, you could get in the situation where SVN_ERR reset the flag,
but the error that was returned was ignored by something further up the
call chain (but still inside an svn function). i believe there are
places where we do ignore errors explicitly, so it could theoretically
happen...
