We long ago decided that we wouldn't be able to keep the repo-root and
repo-path permanently joined in an opaque URL. Someday, we decided,
we would have to store the repo-root in the entries file as another
"live" prop ("entry prop"), just like the repos-UUID.

We just haven't gotten around to doing it... not sure if there's an
issue filed on this yet. But it means creating a new entry-prop, and
marshalling it to the client. It will be a change that we probably
have to roll out over a couple of releases.

Note -- I don't think we'll need to add a whole new RA->get_root()
API, just like we added RA->get_uuid(). The only reason
RA->get_uuid() exists is so that wc-less operations (like 'svn cp URL
URL') can decide if you're working against the same repository or
not. But I can't think of a reason a wc-less operation would need to
know the repos-root.
