Wait a minute. The svn client won't ever send this. So I'm not sure
what you mean by "client send path" here, or "requiring ... the use of
a proxy".

Your request for this feature is entirely predicated on a proxy. So of
course you need a proxy. And the client is never sending this header.

What?! You must be looking at a proxy implementation. That is why you
want this feature.

I don't get it. First you mention "a proxy wants to do this, so I need
<this>", and then you say "but I haven't looked at proxies".

This seems inconsistent.
