Missing runtime version number API - add for 1.0?

I went looking for a way to find the version of the client API that
my code was working against at run time. I only found this comment
in svn_version.h

I'd love to be able to query the version of svn that my code is
running against. At a minimum so that I can report the svn version
correctly for use in defect reports.

I noticed this problem when testing on RedHat that had 0.36.0 rpm's
installed but pysvn reported 0.37.0, not good.

Is this something that should be added for 1.0? It would be a new
API function so it will no break existing users.

I suppose you have to add one version query for every .so/.dll that
you have.
