We also have a header file dedicated to svn_error_t and yet it is defined in

The fact that you personally hate it doesn't add any weight to your other

I don't see any other strong opinions on this and as you try to teach
everyone on this list Apache doesn't have per project dictators who say what
can, can't and must be done. With a veto we ask for a different solution in
order not to stall the project.

What solution do you suggest for having a header included everywhere that
changes on every tag?

Can we move the defines that change to a different header that isn't
included everywhere?
What kind of forward (typedef) would work to allow keeping the reduced set
of includes?

I just did what you did in early 1.7 development: reduce the number of
recursive header includes and this one really helps in the build time:
Especially for third party projects building on top of Subversion. (Which we
currently ask to follow trunk)
