I believe I know how to support the backend from Kamesh's branch
(which may also help fix log -g) with only in-FS annotations, like on
the reintegrate branch.

I would like there to be more review by people other than me. Kamesh
has done a lot of good work, but I've certainly found a number of
serious (since-fixed) issues, and I'd be surprised if I caught them

My personal preference would be to merge reintegrate to trunk in the
very near future; then update issue-2897 based on that, then to (on
the 2897 branch) reimplement the FS API without SQLite (I'll do that),
while concurrently folks review Kamesh's libsvn_client changes (not
the backend, which as I said I'll rewrite). Then merge that back to
trunk, then remove the SQLite dependency (which also involves
rewriting the node origin cache on FSFS only, which will be very
easy... just store them as small files in a directory or something),
then BRANCH 1.5.
