Breaking the API is not really a problem at the moment. However I
really meant changing svn_repos_open so that it returned more useful
errors. I think the reason it returns REPOS_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION in
the case where there is no format file is so that it can support old
repositories which didn't have such a file. I was questioning whether
this was the best thing to do. It may be better if it simply passed
through the ENOENT error from APR, or perhaps returned some sort of
NO_REPOS error.
