Interesting approach. I was discussing this problem with ghudson
last week in IRC, and was planning to fix it in a very different
way. ghudson pointed out that it's a design mistake that the
svn_repos_open() tries to do any locking at all. My thought was that
the bdb shared-lock should be an implementation detail of
libsvn_fs_bdb; I was planning to push the shared-lock code down into
the bdb implementation of svn_fs_open().
