If I understand this correctly: the issue is that ra_dav needs to be
able to distinguish between an error from the XML parser itself and an
error which occurs when ra_dav's SAX callbacks return a <0 value.

There's never been a way to do this in the neon API, though it's a
definitely a reasonable feature to have. I'd recommend limiting SVN to
using 0.24.[0-2] and working out how to add this to neon rather than
performing major surgery on ra_dav (I expect the latter would be more
work than the former).
