ra_local doesn't actually call these callbacks, which makes it very hard
to write tests using the file:// RA backend. Apparently ra_dav uses them
most often, but there are no Python tests that use it. I have used them
successfully here using other protocols though.

That should be ok, as the functions on svn.client that return auth_batons return opaque pointers. I've fixed the

Here's the summary again:


Allow callbacks in svn_ra_callbacks2_t() to be implemented in Python.

 * subversion/bindings/swig/python/libsvn_swig_py/swigutil_py.c

   (svn_swig_py_setup_ra_callbacks): Fill in callback function pointers
   and auth_baton

    ra_callbacks_progress_funcs): Add wrappers for Python callbacks

   (make_ob_string): Add function
