If I may request one tiny additional feature for the agent strings:
currently, the agent string is a fixed #define deep inside the svn
library. I'd like to customize that one to include some client specific
stuff. Something like

#ifdef CUSTOM_CLIENT_AGENT_STRING
#define SVN_FULL_AGENT_STRING CUSTOM_CLIENT_AGENT_STRING + SVN_AGENT_STRING
#else
#define SVN_FULL_AGENT_STRING SVN_AGENT_STRING
#endif

that way, svn clients can add their own string, and hosters could create
some statistics about the use of svn clients. Kind of like the browser
statistics for websites.
