I'd like to bump this long-sleeping thread.

AFAIK the patch has not been reviewed yet.
Would anyone volunteer reviewing it?

This point is now invalid, since Mike Pilato pointed out that
this check should rather be done in the initial working copy
crawl preceding a commit. He said since we check for conflicts
during that crawl anyway, we might as well adapt that code instead
of adding open_dir() callbacks to the editor.

However, Mike also said that open_dir() callbacks might be nice
to have anyway. So we might still want to leave them in.

I myself would in principle object to adding dead code, but if
changing the editor interface really requires a big ceremony every
time, we might as well give open_dir() callbacks a free piggyback
ride into the tree and hope they get used by clients at some point.
Any client API consumers around for comments?

This point is still valid.

Since the tree-conflicts branch is already carrying a lot of changes,
and there are a few more to come, it would be nice for us to put this
helper functionality into trunk straight away. The farther the branches
divert the more headaches we'll have to face when merging tree-conflicts
into trunk. We already have a few libsvn_wc API changes in the tree-conflicts

But given that a different patch I submitted (which only changed white
space!) was rejected because there is still backporting to 1.5 going on,
I guess there will be objections committing the new diff callbacks to
trunk straight away, right?

If so, I will have to add these callbacks to the tree-conflicts
branch before they get into trunk (and I can live with that, it's
not that big of an issue, really).
