svn_cmdline_init EXC_BAD_ACCESS... and svn_pool_create_ex usage of abort

From: se˝ior ┐tyrtle? <machtyrtle_at_gmail.com>

1. svn_cmdline_init might write to a null file if it fails to open file
descriptors for std[in,out,err].
This patch fixes it.

2. It also contains:

int svn_cmdline_init2 (const char *progname, const char *file_path, int fd);

Similar to svn_cmdline_init(), but can be safely called from code not
compiled with [the same compiler as] libsvn-subr.

If file_path is non-null, write any intialization messages to the file
found or created at this location. Otherwise write to; stdout if fd==1,
stderr if fd==2.

Files will be opened with "a+", to preserve any contents they have before
calling. If initialization was succesfull and the file did not previously
exist, it will be removed.

3. svn_pool_create_ex doesn╣t make so much sense to be registering abort ()
to be called when apr cant alloc any more memory. Subversion is a
library...maybe an app will be using it as such and doesn't want it to tear
everything down when it fails. How about:

apr_pool_t *
svn_pool_create_ex2 (apr_pool_t *parent_pool,
    apr_allocator_t *allocator,
    apr_abortfunc_t abort_fun);

I realize I could use apr_pool_create_ex...but doesn't the existance of
svn_pool_create_ex imply that libsvn might be doing things behind the
scenes. And I'd rather not be learning two API's until I decide to.

4. So I don╣t get burnt: The subversion API is by far the easiest I've ever
used.
