Let's start with the easy one :)

Just to make sure I'm correctly understanding the scope of this change:

Change *all* methods using pools (public api, internal calls) in libsvn_wc to
use the new pool paradigm (result/scratch) and adjust any calling place of a
public libsvn_wc api call if necessary (i.e. a caller of libsvn_wc may have to
create a scratch pool).

That's it?

I can do this :-)

Maybe, in return, I can get a little bit attention, reviews and help to get two
of my pending patches into subversion... :-)
