Okay, so then there really is a risk here for very large
repositories, particularly ones using FSFS.

Should we start recommending that such projects upgrade to APR 1.X
(and httpd 2.1, if they're depending on mod_dav_svn?) Should we
write a FAQ about it?

Funny, KDE is using fsfs, and I would have expected them to run into
a >2GB revision file.
