        Hi Lieven,

What are the open issues on this? Is it possible for somebody else to
resolve the few loose ends there are?

The code is in use in quite some places (the old public api uses the new
functions), but there are other places that use the old api that indirectly
calls svn_dirent*.

When I look through it, it seems most dirent and url public api's are
completed, but are not used everywhere they should. Doing a massive rename
to make the api internal just to make it public in 1.7 doesn't feel ok.

The current code should to improve the Windows handling and I like the extra
url and dirent normalization changes.
