Yikes! Is this documented anywhere?

So, here's how I fell down this hole, and any suggestions for getting
out are appreciated.

Bert only wrote svn_wc__adm_open_in_context(), so I've got a local
patch for svn_wc__adm_probe_in_context(). When using this inside of
libsvn_client/merge.c, I get a segfault on pool cleanup. I've traced
this to a double close somewhere: a svn_wc__db_t * is being shared
somewhere, hand the object that is "borrowing" it is attempting to
close it after it has already been closed. Kaboom.

I *think* the errant usage is related to the use of
svn_wc_revision_status2() within the merge code, hence my efforts to
switch it over to use wc_ctx. But that turns out to be a mountain of
work because it uses svn_wc_status2() which returns an
svn_wc_status2_t struct which in turn contains an entry. We don't
have to rewrite the entire status stuff just yet but letting it use a
wc_ctx would mean svn_wc_revision_status2() could grab it's access
batons from the wc_ctx->db ... and hopefully that would solve the
double free problem. Convoluted, I know, and I'm fixin' to have a
stack overflow just thinking about it.

Writing this just now, I think I may have an idea of how to solve it.
I'll keep poking around.

Yeah, that does seem like overkill. Another function rewrite to put
on the ever-growing queue. :/
