Re: SVNSERVE Tests Failing

I think the committer assumed that all editor providers were using the
default editor, which isn't the case.

However, I have a much bigger problem to bring up. apply_text cannot be
efficiently marshalled over the network as an editor operation. The
sender looks at the input streams and constructs a diff, sends diff
windows over the network, and the receiver is stuck; it can't make
another apply_text call with just the diffs. That means
libsvn_ra_svn/editor.c would have to be broken out into N different
editor implementations, each of which knows how to handle diffs.

So, -1 on apply_text. The editor interface shouldn't work that way.
