Re: Re-use connection for svn:externals

Alright. Here are my thoughts so far based on what others have said:

I'm not quite sure about Justin's suggestion, because I don't think the
delay is in establishing the TCP connection; I think it is in performing the
authentication and stuff. So just re-using a TCP connection won't buy us
much, right?

As for Bert's concern about always opening at the repository root could
cause issues like #3242, does everyone agree that we should avoid doing that
as part of the solution?

So could we (as some suggested) take an existing RA session and reparent it
to the root? Then if using that doesn't work, we fall back to creating a
new session (since as Stefan suggested, this is an optimization so it
doesn't need to break anything).

Do I understand correctly so far?
