I'm happy to replace my code with any other that uses 50 LOC or less.
Do you know one ;) ?

But seriously, I probably shouldn't have mentioned FSFS in the commit
message because it obviously misled people. r981189 should make my
intentions clearer. The whole purpose of this API is to allow for efficient
implementations of svn_cache__dup_func_t, svn_cache__deserialize_func_t
and svn_cache__serialize_func_t.
