I don't think this improvement to the API is necessary. I think it's
too bad that svn_client_revert() and svn_client_delete() aren't
consistent with svn_client_add3() right now, but it's not a big enough
deal to be worth the code churn to make them consistent. (Especially
since in revert and delete aren't even consistent with each other in
the way they handle errors anyway).

Just my $0.02,
