I'm now trying to use svn_ra_do_status(), and I'm wondering about a few things

- Why is the apply_textdelta-callback called, but nothing done? I'm giving
/dev/null as source and destination, and strace shows no writes or reads.

- I don't get an "entry:md5" property or some such, but believe that the
parameter for the close_file callback should be what I want.

- Is there a way to get the file *size*?

And BTW, is there an easy way to get a textdelta-stream into a buffer? The
reverse direction can be done with svn_stream_from_stringbuf(), but I didn't
find a svn_stream_to_stringbuf or something like that.

Thanks in advance!
