I'm not Berry either :-)

I used this function to test out the code fragment I posted. Making
this function
a supported interface would make me happy.

Peter would you be willing to turn svn_client__ra_session_from_path
into a
supported svn_client_ra_session_from_path?

I hope Max that you understand the reason for this being in either in
svn_client or
implementing Peters suggestion to make svn_client__ra_session_from_path
a supported API.
I was surprised by the suggestion that this obvious improvement needed
explaining.
