Oh come now. We're not talking about some Enterprise XYZ RPC thingamabob
that does everything through a distributed transaction manager. Local
IPC-based RPC isn't all that slow. But that's beside the point.

My point is that (a) there are alternatives, and (b) there is no way
under the sun to make the Subversion libraries 100% crash-safe, so if
you need to protect your plugin environment from crashes, splitting off
the "unstable" code into a separate daemon process is a fairly standard
method for doing that.
