But Apache modules aren't installed for normal linking purposes like
Subversion RA libraries are. So if we want to adopt the Apache scheme,
we'll have to create a directory for RA libraries and install symlinks
to the actual libraries, or copies of them, or something. (I'm not
actually sure whether libtool would help us do the symlink thing
portably.)

I'd say we should just ditch run-time repository loading, but Ben uses
it in the Red Hat RPMs, and it means that the installed binary set can
be chopped up more finely than it could otherwise.
