Oh, right, now I remember. Yes, ra_svn does impose ordering constraints
on the ra_lib interface which didn't exist before (because it's a
stateful protocol), and there was one place in the code which didn't
already obey those constraints. Your point stands; sometimes the tail
does have to wag the dog.
