This new configuration option assumes any client (=libsvn_client/libsvn_ra_local user) wants to have the same caching.
So a short lived 'svn' which exits after a single command has a similar cache as a long living 'subclipse' or ....
Is this really what we want?
The previous code specifically made this behavior different between clients, while the one time initializing in sv_ra__local__open makes it hard for clients to configure their own caching. (They can't do it before calling into libsvn_client as it will be overwritten by this new code)
