If you call the old svn_repos_begin_report() API directly, things
should work as expected, with the report_baton_t->default_depth being
used when the old set_path()/link_path() don't supply an overriding
depth. However, it appears that all the RA code uses the new
svn_repos_begin_report2() API, which will have the problem described
by Vlad (it always uses svn_depth_infinity).
