Hi Stefan,

Thanks for the constructive review! I accept your nits, but have one comment:

> components that do not contain slashes. In which case
> svn_sort_compare_items_as_paths produces the same result but is less

The paths are like:

   trunk/documents/papers/archetypes/paper_plots/103lg.ps

But I still believe you are right that lexical sort will work fine and is
simpler than svn_sort_compare_items_as_paths.

The revised patch is attached. Here's a proposed commit message:

[[[
Issue #4134: svnadmin dump files are not reproducible, due to APR 1.4.6 hash order changes

This patch sorts deleted path names before dumping them.

* subversion/libsvn_repos/dump.c
   (close_directory): sort hash deleted_entries before dumping.

Patch by: Dustin Lang <dstndstn_at_gmail.com>
Review by: stsp
(Stefan suggested several stylistic changes and using
svn_sort_compare_items_lexically.)
]]]

cheers,
dstn
