[RFC] Mark deprecated functions with SVN_DEPRECATED / __attribute__((deprecated))

From: Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis <arfrever.fta_at_gmail.com>

I would like to suggest that deprecated functions be additionally marked with
__attribute__((deprecated)) [1]. I suggest to directly use SVN_DEPRECATED
which can be defined in a header (e.g. svn_types.h) by:
#define SVN_DEPRECATED __attribute__((deprecated))

Using __attribute__((deprecated)) causes that compiler prints a warning during
compilation when a deprecated function is called:
FILE:FILE_LINE: warning: ‘FUNCTION’ is deprecated (declared at HEADER:HEADER_LINE)

apr.h defines __attribute__(__x) as empty definition on systems which don't
support function attributes.
