Following the redirection could mean that all URLs would have to be
re-written on each request (i.e. doubling every request) because a WC
could have a base URL that refers to an old URL. IMO, SVN shouldn't
automatically update the WC with the new base.

It's okay if the user gets a nice error relaying the 302 and then they
can do a 'svn switch --relocate', but following it or doing the
relocate for them shouldn't be done without explicit user consent.
