I think I agree. Callers, at least up to the level of svn_repos_fs_lock(),
know what filesystem they are accessing, so if they want to add this
information to any error that is returned, they can.

So, I vote for removing the path to the repository filesystem from all of the
error messages in subversion/libsvn_fs_{base,fs}/err.c


(While we're on the subject, shouldn't those two "err.c" files be unified,
given that only about 2 of the 25 functions differ at all between them?)
