Well, my plan was to just disable the recovery lock for FSFS
repositories. It violates the "no read-locking" tenet of FSFS anyway,
and means that a locking-crippled underlying filesystem can't be used
for read-only access.

Accomplishing this in the 1.1.x line is a little tricky, though, since
the natural thing to do is add an API to libsvn_fs to query the FS type
of an existing repository. I'm thinking I'll just violate the
abstraction barrier for the 1.1.x backport.
