Ah. Excellent! Glad you got that in. It'll be a big help.

Yup, you're right. And I think there is a lot of cleanup that can happen
entirely on the SVN side. There is probably a lot that can be done in how
mod_dav drives the existing API, too.

For example, we can stream one propstat at a time, clearing pools in
between. And that probably won't need an API change.

But SVN really needs to clear some pools somewhere in there. mod_dav
certainly isn't using a hundred megabytes in order to respond to 1000 file
PROPFIND requests. (and pool clears prolly don't need an API change)

Cheers,
