I wondered the same. The answer appears to be that
'svn_log_changed_path2_t' (which was added to svn_types.h in 1.6) has
now been extended with two new fields, 'text_modified' and
'props_modified', which are only valid in certain cases, as part of

The question is: would we prefer to represent the data another way? For
example, we could perhaps make them booleans and say that if both are
false when action = 'M', that means the specific data is NOT available,
and if either or both is true then that means it IS available.

Stefan2 has gone on to use the tristate type for two more purposes in
his performance branch, but I'm not sure that we've yet demonstrated
it's worth making it a (svn-)global public type.
