Re: HTTP protocol v2: rethunk.

An update on the status of this 'HTTP v2 protocol' initiative:

* Design doc is fairly stable now: see notes/http-protocol-v2.txt

* mod_dav_svn now responds to OPTIONS requests with new opaque URI
"stubs" in its response headers:

      youngest revision: number
            "root stub": !svn/me
          "pegrev stub": !svn/bc
        "revision stub": !svn/rev

* ra_serf now notices these stubs and caches them in its ra session object.

So the next step is to choose an important RA command (like 'update'),
and make ra_serf take advantage of these new stubs. The goal is to
eliminate all of the PROPFIND discovery stuff, and instead just have
it directly construct whatever URLs it needs by building on the stubs.
