I'm working on it now, will have a patch tonight.

The apr_filepath_root is more then we want, because it also splits the path
in two parts, so we need to allocate new strings, pass a pool to the
function etc. But, it supports more Windows path conventions than the one I
implemented, so let's use it.

I'm gonna stick to the svn_path_is_root function because of the overhead
needed to use apr_filepath_root.
