Yeah, my initial patch tried to use a semicolon, but it ended up not
working at all... there were all sorts of weird interferences, 404
errors, and things I couldn't explain. So gstein suggested that going
back to standard query syntax was OK.

Even if query-strings aren't cached by caching proxies, I'm not
particularly worried -- the main advantage of proxy caches are that we
want them to kick in when doing checkouts, updates, etc. The syntax
we're talking about here is basically for humans (or simple CGI
scripts) to use, as a matter of user-friendliness. The ra_serf is
still going to use the old !svn/bc/REV/path syntax to GET each file
during an update. That's when the caching proxy really matters.
