HELP NEEDED: Bindings changes for issue #3200

From: C. Michael Pilato <cmpilato_at_collab.net>

As part of issue #3200, I've done my best to get the various bindings back
to the state they were in before I reworked the C API. As far as I know,
that means that with respect to support for custom revision properties
provided at commit-time:

    Python supports this via the client APIs in all places that the C API

    Ruby supports this via the client APIs in almost all the places that
    the C API does. I didn't know what to do with mkdir(), for the reasons
    noted in the log message of r31249.

    JavaHL compiles, but doesn't support this feature at all. I don't
    *think* that's my fault (and if it is, I'm sorry). But if this isn't
    the state we want to release those bindings in for 1.5.0, I need someone
    else to undertake that change. (See r31250 for a list of the
    SVNClient.cpp functions that would need to grow a 'revPropTable'
    parameter which is Java-ized and passed into the C API.)

    Perl. I don't know. The Perl bindings almost appear to be unmaintained.
    They build, and the tests pass, but as far as I know there's no support
    for this feature. Here again, I'm out of my element with this set
    of bindings.

So, if you're in the To: line of this mail, it means you appear per the last
few revisions of one of these bindings collections to be the closest
approximation of a maintainer thereof, and I need your help finishing what I
started, unbreaking what I've broken, or adding a new feature before the
1.5.0 release because we overlooked it earlier.

Please keep issue #3200 informed of your progress, and of course add
relevant revisions to the r31243 block in /branches/1.5.x/STATUS.

Thanks, all!
