I'll do worse than a +/-0, a conditional +1 :-\

I'm +1 if r1173425 and r1173639 are backported, for the reasons
described in http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4013#desc3

If these changes are *not* backported then I'm -1

I won't argue with Ivan's suggestion in STATUS
(http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/subversion/branches/1.7.x/STATUS?r1=1173538&r2=1173537&pathrev=1173538)
that we extend the soak another two weeks, though I want to point out
that we are returning to the same API's we used since 1.5, *not*
adding anything new.
