Implement SRV DNS

I post this feature request after having created an issue. Having not
read carefully the subversion issue tracker guidelines, I did not ask on
the list before (issue 1839). Here is my issue's content:

> The RFC 2782 describes DNS Resources Records providing information
> about location of services (like the deprecated WKS RR). Subversion
> should implement this feature.
> Thus when accessing the following URL:
> svn://domain.tld/repos
> the client would retrieve the SRV RR for _svn._tcp.domain.tld, that
> would be of the form
> 1 0 3690 main-svn-server.domain.tld
> 2 0 13690 backup-svn-server.domain.tld
> And the client would contact main-svn-server on its port 3690. If
> connection is not possible, the client would try backup-svn-server on
> port 13690...

The SRV RR is really a very interesting feature of the DNS, as it allows
great flexibility, and even load-balancing. There is also a library to
deal with it, libsrv <http://libsrv.sourceforge.net/>.
