Need repos UUID in libsvn_auth?

I'll just note that I keep remembering that we should have the
ability for credentials to be keyed off a repos id. For example, you
wouldn't want to try *all* credentials *all the time*. Chances are
that there will be a match already present.

Therefore, when you open the auth baton, repos UUID should be passed.
(I could also see it where s_a_f_c takes in the repos UUID.) Hmm.
If you don't know the id (i.e. initial checkout), I wonder whether we
should even be using the normal auth providers - skip directly to the
interactive provider?

Some providers (say a cert) might ignore repos UUID. But, I think
it'd be important to add this in now rather than later. We could
pass in NULL now, but as long as we have it sort of there now, we can
easily add it in later once we really have UUID's...

A thought. -- justin
