Exposing fs-loader.h for out-of-tree filesystem libraries

Hi all,

I've applied to the Git project in google's summer of code to write a
translation layer which will allow subversion clients to access git
repositories. I'm planning on implementing this by writing a subversion
filesystem backend, but I note the fs-loader.h header, containing the
necessary vtable structure definitions, does not seem to be installed.

While I understand the fs-loader.h API and ABI should not be considered
stable across /any/ release rev (even 1.4.x point releases) of subversion,
would it be possible to add it to the installation under the understanding
that it is (currently?) an API in flux? This would allow out-of-tree
filesystem libraries to be created, although they would have to monitor
changes to fs-loader.h and stay up-to-date when new releases are made.
