issue-2897: lack of escaping in construct_rooted_path_segments

From: David Glasser <glasser_at_davidglasser.net>

The new construct_rooted_path_segments interpolates pathnames (in
fact, probably RA-user-specified pathnames) directly into a query
string. This will be a security hole.

If this code continues to exist, it should be fixed to return two
things: a string like "(?,?,?,?)" and an array of parent paths to

I wouldn't actually recommend prioritizing fixing this, since I plan
to reimplement svn_fs_mergeinfo_get_commit_and_merge_ranges without
SQLite anyway. But if that doesn't happen and we end up actually
using this backend, this is a must-fix.

This is now tracked in issue #3063; I added a warning comment in r28753.
