Don't get me wrong. I'm not arguing for GNU style. I'm really not
clear on why they think that's a good idea. I'm fine with the way we're
doing things.

*nod* which is why my initial patch removed the tag. ghudson didn't
like that so I resubmitted adding them. I don't really care which way
we do it. But it ought to be consistent.

Not sure myself but if the tag exists it really needs to be the same as
the typedef. Otherwise it breaks doxygen and SWIG (to some extent).

The only two cases where they are used but don't match are:
svn_dirent_t and svn_error_t

The minimal version of the patch only fixes those.

Personally, I could care less if we fix all the instances, but I figured
while I was looking for them I'd look for all of them. I wanted to find
them now rather than later so that they could be fixed by the voting
deadline tomorrow.
