I've already got some of this done. I just haven't submitted the patch
yet. It's necessary for the prompt support reworking that I've been
doing. clkao found that the cv trick I used fails for closures. So
we're having to use a different technique that requires a more OO
interface to SVN::Client (SVN::Ra the other place effected already has

I need to finish testing to be sure I'm not breaking something else and
to make sure I'm really not leaking memory.

I hadn't written the code yet to import all the subs into the
SVN::Client namespace yet on my side, but I have written a new. And
written the wrapper for the auth_open stuff we needed. I'll probably
adopt some version of your patch for the rest of it.
