From 'svn' it makes sense to move the setting to the configuration as 'svn' use a new 'svn_client_ctx_t' for every command.

But, in several other clients the svn_client_ctx_t is a long living object. (This is becoming more useful in WC-NG as it will keep the handle to the wc.db instance open for you over multiple commands).

This would require setting the setting before executing the command and then resetting it later in the compatibility wrapper (and in other libraries that don't want to change their api incompatible).
