Oh, I definitely understand you -- in fact, this statelessness was the
reason I didn't do things that way in the first place. (I'm pretty
sure Ben was talking about server discovery of client capabilities,
though: he just meant to send them in the headers of an initial
OPTIONS request).

Our worries seem unfounded: see r27647. It's true that HTTP can be
stateless. But in practice, our client opens one session and does
multiple requests/responses over it. I beleve note we were already
depending on this, too: see the assignment to repos->is_svn_client in
subversion/mod_dav_svn/repos.c, for example.
