I'm, aware of that and my original patch had the apr_pcalloc in it.

It's not about the costs. Looking for the root cause of a crash,
I scanned the whole ra_svn -related code for apr_palloc and
found it was used for all baton structures, followed by an
explicit initialization of all elements.

So, I had the option to either implicitly or explicitly set the NULL
pointer and both seemed equally valid.

I went with the explicit assignment.
