As I understand it:

* svn_repos_parse_dumpstream2()
    input: dump stream
    output: drives a provided svn_repos_parse_fns2_t vtable

* svn_repos_get_fs_build_parser3()
    input: svn_repos_t handle
    output: svn_repos_parse_fns2_t vtable that, when driven, commits to
            the provided repository

Therefore, any notion of "Did the commit succeed" and "What revnum it
resulted in" belongs in the latter, not in the former.

Just consider alternative implementors of the vtable: does NEW_REV make
sense for 'svnrdump load'? Does it make sense for a vtable
implementation that just prints what callbacks were called (akin to the
