I changed my mind. It should be OK to not check the depth value as other lib
functions do. Here is the updated svn_wc_add3 patch, the cleanup patch just
state the same.

Rui, Guo

Introduced a new svn_wc_add3() to handle depth correctly. This makes the
--depth option in 'svn add' works in the same way as ci, up etc.

* subversion/include/svn_wc.h
  (svn_wc_add3): New, accept depth parameters and ignore it for files.
  (svn_wc_add2): Now deprecated.

* subversion/libsvn_wc/adm_ops.c
  (svn_wc_add3): New, accept depth parameters and ignore it for files.
    Obsolete comment deleted.
  (svn_wc_add2): Deprecated. Now calls svn_wc_add3 with a default

* subversion/libsvn_wc/copy.c
  copy_dir_administratively): Switch to svn_wc_add3, with a default
    svn_depth_infinity depth.

* subversion/libsvn_client/merge.c
  (merge_dir_added): Switch to svn_wc_add3, with a default svn_depth_infinity

* subversion/libsvn_client/copy.c
  (repos_to_wc_copy_single): Switch to svn_wc_add3, with a default
    svn_depth_infinity depth.

* subversion/libsvn_client/add.c
  (add_file, add_dir_recursive,
  add, add_parent_dirs): Switch to svn_wc_add3, with a default
    svn_depth_infinity depth.
  (add): Pass all directory target to add_dir_recursive, otherwise adjustment
    will also be needed here.

* subversion/tests/cmdline/depth_tests.py
  (add_tree_with_depth_files): Renamed to add_tree_with_depth to reflect the
    new content: depth verified & new tests added for the --force & --parents
  (test_list): update according to the rename.
