You are correct, sir. The RA layer is not, in fact, a port of the
repository API. It's just a limited set of network commands, only
those things that a subversion client might want to do. In the case
of commits, the client only wants to drive an editor and discover that
the commit succeeded or failed. It's nowhere near the level of
control you'd have if you were using svn_fs.h directly.

If you had time/energy, I think it *might* be possible to map all of
svn_fs.h to DAV/DeltaV methods, but it would be tricky. If you have
specific set of things you want to accomplish, we can probably help
you design a set of specific http requests to carry them out.
