In the hopes of somehow at least partly extricating my foot from my mouth,
attached is a revised patch which uses NL instead of SVN_NL, defines this
new namespace-less macro in include/private/svn_compat.h (following a brief
chat on IRC with C. Michael Pilato) and lines things up so that, as much as
possible, they fit nicely into an 80x25 console window. I even reviewed the
changes by opening the files in VIM on Windows in a default 80x25 console
window. :-)

I also thought it would make sense to propose the use of NL over
APR_EOL_STR only for multiline string literals, so I reverted the changes
in the previous version of the patch which changed APR_EOL_STR where used
in other places, such as parameters to functions, newline matching, etc.
The patch is a bit smaller, though not a lot since the bulk of the changes
still apply and are simply a little bit different.

Thoughts? Ready to be applied?
