No, there's no reason for mod_dav_svn to stop producing "baseline
collection" (bc) resource urls. It's part of the deltaV spec, and a
deltaV client would expect it. Certainly ra_dav needs them, because
it's trying to follow deltaV procedures as best it can.

The point is that there would now be a human-friendly format, in
addition to the deltaV-friendly format.

I believe Sander already made earlier comments about how the '!svn'
urls can be access-controlled.
