The network is a limited resource, so the ideal mapping will match
what the client needs. That gets transported over the wire, and then
the server figures it out. If the client needs an extra round trip
because of impedance with the server API, then you've lost.

In any case... I think we're off on a tangent here. Ben is going to
modify ra_serf and mod_dav_svn. Nobody else has signed up to do any
network code, so until that happens... what are we discussing? :-P
