Yes.

For what you describe, you _definitely_ need the _is_ version of the
API. effetively, you want to do what libsvn_wc does; actually use either
_svn or .svn, but treat both as special names (e.g., even if the .net
hack is enabled, you still can't "svn mkdir .svn").

Reading this discussion, I'm now really sorry I ever provided the _get_
form.

I definitely hope client code doesn't do that...
