I've identified the first set of revisions: r985014, r985669, and
r987893. These make more complete use of the svn_ctype_is* functions
throughout the code base.

On a more general note, I'm planning on reviewing the revisions and
then committing the merge (assuming all tests pass). I invite folks
to review the various commit mails (which will hopefully be relatively
small).
