Oh, I think we all agree the new RA functionality should stay. The
question is whether we also add something to the reporter vtable so
that svn_wc_crawl_revisions3() can get this answer directly, without
having to be passed it by various svn_client_foo() functions.

I'd like to sleep on it. Er, and, well, fly to Munich on it too, I
guess, since that's the next thing after sleep for me :-).

Vlad, I'll commit my patch as it is for now, since almost all of it
would stand no matter what we decide. Your proposed additional
changes can be made easily at any time (and we're clearly not
branching tonight, sigh). Let's let this question sit in our brains
for a bit and then see.

-Karl, tired from fighting RA layers all day
