Do you need svn_dirent_is_absolute or svn_uri_is_absolute? I rather add
one of those again instead of you needing to rely on workarounds.

Depending on the way you look at 'c:hi' it's both absolute and relative.
Your example makes it look like a relative path. However, a relative
path can be added to the current working directory to make an absolute
path, but you can't do that with 'c:hi'. So for practical reasons 'c:hi'
type of paths are considered absolute.
