If svn_ra_initialize is present in 1.2 then we can require that it be
called before any other "new in 1.2" function. Most of the svn_ra_xxx
stuff happens to be new in 1.2, we deprecated the vtable approach.

I'm not sure why the patch doesn't implement svn_ra_initialize, just a
lack of time perhaps? If the --enable-dso problem is considered to be
sufficiently important to block the release then we have to implement
something, and it may as well be svn_ra_initialize.
