You don't care what FS backend the server runs. All you care is that
the endpoint of svn_ra_open4() implements the Subversion RA API
properly. Normal Subversion servers use svn_fs.h which in turn presents
the same API _regardless of which backend is used_.
I'll spell it out: the notion of 'valid pathname in a Subversion
filesystem' does not depend on the FS backend in use.
