Hi Mike,

I'm thinking about interoperability between svn 1.8-serf client and
pre-1.8 server: currently we use non-bulk skelta mode and this leads
PROPFINDs and GETs for each file/directory. I've added option to
advertise inline props support to leave possibility to use bulk
(send-all) mode for pre-1.8 server by default, while relying on server
configuration for newer servers.
