libsvn_fs_util is important:

1) As we really need to focus on getting an end-to-end Merge Tracking
prototype completed, the sqlite merge info index you're moving to
libsvn_fs_util may be used by both the FSFS and BDB backends for a
first cut. The API, on the other hand, shouldn't be dictating this as
a requirement (BDB might later want to use its own schema, the Google
backend might have other ideas, etc.).

2) C-Mike has mentioned that there's non-Merge Tracking related FS
code which he'd like to put into libsvn_fs_util module so that it can
be shared between the FSFS and BDB backends.
