We need to release 1.0.9 and 1.1.1 with r11211 ASAP

From: Tobias Ringström <tobias_at_ringstrom.mine.nu>

The security fixes introduced in 1.0.8 and 1.1.0-rc4 made RA->get_dir
(and therefore "svn ls") over ra_dav "glacially slow" (as someone
described it on users@). For a simple test case of mine, an ls of 412
files that used to take 1.5 s now took around six minutes, i.e. it's 240
times slower, but it could be a lot slower still depending on the
circumstances. This is a showstopper performance regression for many users.

Luckily, a fix is available, but we need to get new versions out ASAP.
(Unfortunatelly it will be difficult in some cases to get the fix out
because vendors may have included the security fix (which caused the
problem), but they may not include r11211 automatically because it's not
a securiy fix.)

So, please head over to STATUS for both 1.0.x and 1.1.x and review and vote!

/Tobias
