Incidentally, I would like for there to be a way to re-anchor RA
sessions, because I would like svn to start treating RA sessions as more
heavyweight than it does. (Because for svn+ssh:// with password auth,
an RA session means typing your password.) The re-anchoring function
could be allowed to open a new session when talking to an old server.

However, it seems just as wrong for svn_ra_check_path() to re-anchor an
RA session as it would be to open a new one. So it still seems like
libsvn_client has to be involved in the fallback, ugly as that is.

So this isn't directly related to the ra_svn_check_path() issue, just
something on my wishlist.
