Yes, but libsvn_fs has to know about the internals of libsvn_repos --
because the README lives in the "repos" part of the repository, not in
the "fs" part. No matter how we cut it, if a single README is to
contain both generic repos information and specific fs information,
than there's going to be some inter-library groping going on, I think.
