Re: API issues we might want to solve for 1.0

From Greg Hudson's original list of 9 API things to fix for 1.0, I
think I've filed all the ones I plan to file:

  issue 1644: apr_ and APR_ namespace symbols in Subversion
  issue 1645: svn_client_ctx_t needs constructor
  issue 1646: use "" instead of NULL for anchor directory path
  issue 1647: unnecessary acceptance of NULL by some uri/string APIs

(Anyone else can file issues, too, of course.)

Regarding his item #3 (use tri-state flag instead of boolean for
recursion), I made a note on our existing issue about the 'depth'


My main objection to trying to solve that for 1.0 is that it might
involve a long thread about the API design. That might be
successfully avoided if someone (whistles innocently) were to post a
patch that everyone agrees is Just Right. Then we could probably
apply it without painting any bikesheds, and agree on merging it into
1.0. Obviously we don't need to handle the --depth option for 1.0;
this is about API, not UI.
