The definition of libsvn_client is: "common things that clients would
want to do that involve the coordination of libsvn_ra and libsvn_wc."

If you avoid this library completely and only use RA and WC apis, then
that's essentially equivalent to writing your own libsvn_client from
scratch. It boggles my mind that you'd rather reimplement the whole
high-level wheel than help improve the existing one.
