Uhh no. You can't do stuff like that. It is perfectly valid for a
app to want to use multiple sets of our libraries directly. If
svn_client_init() calls the init functions for its dependencies and the
app uses some of our other libs then the init function has been called
more than once, which I don't believe is what you want.

This is the reason why we don't have an init function that calls
apr_initialize for people, but instead require they call apr_initialize
on their own. svn_cmdline_init() just happens to be how we do it for
our command line tools and we export that to avoid duplicating it across
all of them.
