OK, I'll check...

That sounds good.

In addition, I'd like some kind of checksumming on directory changes.
Conceptually the client might send a checksum of the XML .svn/entries
file, to protect against corrupt directories getting into the
repository because of svn bugs. I think it is probably more complex
in practice because the server after applying equivalent changes might
end up with different files. Mixed-version repositories probably make
it complicated too.

Presumably property changes need protection too.

Probably somebody already thought about these two but #689 only talks
about text changes so I thought I'd mention it.
