They are internal because they are part of the internal interface between
libsvn_ra and libsvn_ra_foo (or fs) I don't consider libsvn_ra_foo as a
public library (except for the deprecated interface). We can change the
vtable at will. That they are libraries is just so they can be dynamically
linked if so desired. At least this was my thinking when I did the svn_ra
API rework for 1.2.
