It represents the user configuration files, canonically located in
~/.subversion on Unix systems (but elsewhere on Windows). You can fetch
it from the canonical location with svn_config_get_config().

You might want to look at the implementation of
svn_client__open_ra_session in subversion/libsvn_client/ra.c to see how
the RA layer actually gets used in Subversion. Unfortunately, that's a
private function and there's a lot of logic in there to duplicate.
We've discussed exposing this function in the API in future releases.

You might also want to look at clients/cmdline/main.c to see how the
command-line client uses libsvn_client.

For the svnserve layer, it would mean that the user's configuration of
tunnel agents won't work; for the HTTP layer, it would mean that the
user's HTTP settings (proxy server, timeout, etc.) won't work.
