Okay... but I think you broke the build and the test suite by reverting
just these two files. I'll fix that.

Oh, hey, there's APR socket stuff! I somehow just assumed that Apache
used its own socket stuff. And it looks like I can turn an apr_file_t *
into a socket at least on Unix, which will allow pipe operation to
work. I'll get right on that.

Yes and no. As a new RA layer, it doesn't affect anyone who doesn't use
it. I'm not sure how having it in the tree and not built is an
improvement on having it in the tree, built, and not used. (Branko
already volunteered to fix any Windows build problems, and the lack of
APR-ized sockets shouldn't actually be causing significant Windows build
problems.)

I'm going to run into this issue again if I ever write libsvn_fs_fs (or
whatever it gets called). You can't exactly write an fs or ra layer as
a series of small commits, because you don't really know if your design
is going to work until you've written a good 60% of the code.
