I cannot answer that particular question but would suggest that the
functions be renamed so that their meaning becomes clear. Otherwise in 3
years there'll be svn_foo_bar(1|2|3|4|5) and nobody will remember what
they're supposed to do anymore. Always assume the documentation is wrong.
Just a humble suggestion. :)
