The old code was the incompatible one; why should the Python
binding change things like this on you? To be complete, we'd
have to wrap the functions that take that raw checksum
(e.g. svn_wc_process_committed*) to convert the hex string back
to the raw data; why convert it back and forth? Python
applications can always use binascii.b2a_hex to get the
human-readable hex form.
