Ancient history. svn_repos_dir_delta() was created loooooooooong ago as
a means of driving an editor to describe the difference between two
Subversion transactions. The reporter code's logic was create long ago
(note the fewer number of o's in "long"), and describes the different
between a Subversion transaction and a ... sorta kinda transaction
representation thingamajig.

The former remains because it is a public API. It exists for
completeness of the API, too, but likely has no users -- I wouldn't mind
deprecating it and dropping it in 2.0.
