Final(?) format bump for 1.7: Format 29

I intend to bump the working copy format to format 29 tomorrow Monday May
29, in the late afternoon/early evening (CEST).

This format bump will rename all the pristines files from earlier WC-NG
formats to have the extension .svn-base and it will add the EXTERNALS table.

The externals table is a new table which will keep track of what externals
are currently described by the working copy. It allows processing local
svn:externals properties in a guaranteed way and provides our API with the
knowledge on which node a svn:external is defined.

I hope you don't notice anything from the format bump as this will be
handled as an automatic conversion like most other intermediate format
bumps. But if you do encounter problems, please let us know.

Unrelated to this format bump, but:

Over the next weeks (Most likely *after* the June 1 milestone) we intend to
define a last revision that supports upgrading from all the intermediate 1.7
releases (formats 12 to 28) to the final 1.7 format. At that point we will
remove the temporary upgrade code from these intermediate formats.

Of course we won't remove the upgrade code from 1.6.x (<= format 10) and
earlier entries as that upgrade will be supported for all future 1.X
