Many of the path arguments in libsvn_wc predate the adm_access system
altogether. Most (if not all) of the time, they may be either absolute or
relative (to $CWD), depending on what the client library provided.
Sometimes they are duplicates of the paths in the associated access_batons
(and hence unnecessary).

Are they ever *relative to* the access_baton path? Perhaps sometimes --
this is the one case (of those listed) which deserves explicit documentation
in the docstrings.
