Depth support and backwards compatibility

From: Garrett Rooney <rooneg_at_electricjellyfish.net>

I was playing around with a trunk build while testing mod_dontdothat,
and noticed that I was getting errors like this when trying to do a
regular recursive checkout with an older (1.4.2) client:

$ svn co http://localhost:8080/svn/repos/trunk foo
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/repos/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: Unsupported report depth 'unknown'

Is this a known problem? It looks like the error is coming from
reporter.c in the write_path_info function, and the check for unknown
was added in r24453 and modified in r24968, both of which seem to be
related to adding backwards compatibility support. I'm absolutely out
of my depth on this stuff, as I've only been skimming the mailing list
discussions about it for some time, but I must admit I was quite
surprised to see my 1.4.2 client error out like that...
