I agree completely. Today i went to finish off my patch for
svn_wc_is_ignored and found that ra_svn was busted. I was not
happy. Unfortunately, i spent time tracking down which revision
broke things before checking the list. Stupid, stupid.

While i agree, that others need to test new code with ra_svn, i
can say that even if they don't, i will be around to keep ra_svn
working. I have no intentions of letting it become the layer
that doesn't work. I am working on this current problem now.

BTW, the specific revision that broke it is 4648.
