I do like the idea of using OPTIONS -- it's very purpose is to
discover features, and so we'd be doing the right thing by making use
of it. I also like the idea of caching the feature's existence in
the svn_ra_dav_session_t.

You keep saying this, but why do you believe it to be true? If the
server stops sending DeltaV props in response to <allprop> requests,
which svn client commands break? And why?

We used to use a gcc flag to enforce C89, but it caused some other
side-effects, so we removed it. I can't remember the details...?

Haven't reviewed your new patch yet... will do so next.
