svn_repos_open doesn't distinguish between a missing format file and a
format file it cannot read, both cause the function to return
SVN_ERR_REPOS_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION. svn_ra_local__split_URL wants to
distinguish between these two cases. It may be better to change
svn_repos_open, document the behaviour, and then use that in
svn_ra_local__split_URL.
