How you should traverse a linked list is a language-specific idiom. You
can do it with an interative loop in lisp or with a recursive function
in C, but neither is terribly friendly to other programmers.

On the other hand, I don't think it's terribly worthwhile to make
svn_handle_error() iterative without simplifying the function as
recommended in the larger parts of #897.
