svn_interfaces.h includes svn_types.h, not the other way around. We'd
start running into circular dependencies if we did it the other way, and
that's the problem that prompted this idea.

svn_log_message_receiver2_t was introduced as part of 1.5. As such, it
isn't yet part of the public API, and we don't have to maintain any
backward compat with it. We should be able to put it wherever we please
at this point. (After we release 1.5, it's stuck.)

However, your point does how for interface definitions which are
currently in svn_types.h
