Thanks for having a go at this.

That's probably fine. I'm not convinced that apr wants to get into this
area, and if it does, it won't be the end of the world to support
svn_sort_hash as an alias for that function.

Also fine.

Not so fine. I don't want to be committed to exporting an svn_atoui64
symbol. Call it svn__atoui64 and mark it with a comment as not for use
by code outside of our tree.

I'd say punt this stuff for now. We shouldn't be using apr_ symbols
internally in our code, but it would take an awful lot of churn to fix
that. (Think "apr_err".) The goal here is to fix the API with a
minimum of pain.
