Re: Are we going to use svn_wc__db_kind_symlink?

The intent would be to migrate svn:special nodes into kind_symlink for
storage and use throughout wc, and then back to svn:special at the
"edge". It's a much more sane way to handle symlinks. (especially if
you've ever looked at the svn_subst.h handling for this stuff!)

Will we get it done for 1.7? Unclear.

My preference is to continue coding as if kind_symlink is used, to
make it easier to add that final bit of code. If we take too many
"symlink isn't used shortcuts", then when we *do* enable the code,
there will be a bunch of gotchas.
