Do we even need to do this URL negotiation? Couldn't we just switch
to making assumptions about the URL's and dispense with all of this?

If we have to continue to maintain mod_dav_svn anyway for older client
support, would it make sense to just add new features into current
library? Such as custom REPORT requests etc? Does the fact that the
current library is related to DAV block us from doing any of the
things you want to do?
