And in case someone wonders why: I have in the past found a bug in
the cache code via #1; we recently had CVE's that would have been
exposed by someone running #3; and #2 is a cheap (though not as good as
'svnadmin1.x create') to test running the 1.7 code on 1.6 repositories
and filesystems.

I am not suggesting to enable any of these by default.
