The current intention is only to use svn_uri_*() for URLs. Relative paths should use svn_relpath_*().
So you are trying to fix a deprecated case.

The remaining issue was that we still had the "/some/path" style paths, that aren't dirents, aren't relpaths and aren't urls. Julian fixed this with the svn_fspath__*() apis.

This allows completing the conversion from svn_path_* by making svn_uri_ only usable for url paths.

Once this is handled we can fix the _join() and _basename() functions for all path formats to only accept relpaths. (For svn_uri this can then handle the uri escape/unescape that had to be handled by callers before)
