Hmm, good point. JavaHL's exception code is not in a very good state
(e.g. some SVNAdmin APIs throw ClientException). ClientException was
originally only thrown by the native library. A while back, I
retrofitted the exception code a little bit with a generic
SubversionException super-class, and NativeException, and started
pushing "throws SubversionException" into new APIs to hide the exact

While we could provide another constructor for ClientException which
doesn't require "source" and "aprError" parameters, it's still a
sub-class of NativeException, which isn't very appropriate for
exceptions thrown by non-native Java code.

I'm not sure what do here -- maybe make NativeException a helper class
instead of something which is sub-classed? Gah,
need..multiple..inheritance. I'll think on it.

  public Status singleStatus(String path, boolean onServer)
          throws ClientException
          return status(path, false, onServer, true, false, false)[0];
      catch (ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException e)
          // ### rethrow as ???
