Wow, I've never heard of anyone accidentally committing an 'emtpy'
revision like this. I mean, I know it's *theoretically* possible, but
in 6 years I've not seen a report about it. Or maybe I just don't
remember such reports.

I do remember some old list conversations where we decided that
libsvn_fs would not enforce any sort of rule that 'commits must not be
empty'. Didn't we agree on that?
