hmmmm... that was what my earlier patches on #443 did - using the new
APIs all the way. But then along the way, while refactoring some
functions, and, I thought if the issue was taken care in phases ( ra_dav
first, ra_local and ra_svn subsequently), two things can be achieved...
- Ease of review : as the patch is only half the size
- Help as a inherent test of the current use of the deprecable API
functions ( that is I have NOT broken existing API usage )

hmmmm, This should be done as a separate patch, before introducing the
new structures, shouldn't it? IMHumbleO, The intent of introducing the
constructor type of function doesnt inherently figure in the purpose of

There a lot for me to take home from your review. Thank you for the
detailed review and suggestions. I will spend time on your comments. You
can expect better logs from me next time on. Thank you.

Oh, no, nothing wrong with the idea.... not at all, in fact I would have
been happy to do that ( specifically, I wasnt happy to introduce the
svn_ra_find_protocol() function at all - just had to do it to reduce the
size of the patch.)
Summary : If a longer patch is okay, I will take care of 1,2. Point 3 to
be taken care as a separate patch prior to #443. Point 4 is a MUST DO
for me. I will take care of this in future. Thanks.
Karl, pl. let me know what you think.
