Right. Got those parts.

I think the new _try() variants can crash because they assume the associated
set exists, so that it can retrieve a pool for the new baton.

It isn't crashing in our case because the client add/delete functions will
manually open an access baton, and then call the svn_wc_* function with that
baton as the associated set.

IOW, it appears that all of our current uses of svn_wc_* pass in an
associated set, which is why we aren't seeing any crashes right now.
