To run the test suite over ra_local, ra_dav, and ra_svn is, I'm sorry
to say, just plain prohibitive to forward motion (generally
speaking). I mean, we're talking about a four-hour process for some
folks. So yeah, I admit that I don't run the tests over all three RA
layers with every commit.

My policy is just to try to use some common sense when deciding what
to test. For example, a change to mod_dav_svn doesn't need any
testing except over ra_dav -- no other RA layers should be touching
that code.

In the case above that Philip solved, the problem, by all indications,
should *not* have been RA-layer-specific. (In fact, I *still* have
trouble believing that they really were RA-layer-specific.) So I ran
only the ra_local tests.
