Backwards compatibility. svn_repos_dir_delta had ignore-ancestry since
1.0, it was added in r845731, and switch operated with ignore-ancestry
set false. r1087015 started making switch require history between the
nodes, with a switch to get the old behaviour. At this stage the
history check was purely a client side check of the relationship between
the nodes, the RA/repos layers still ignored ancestry during switch.
r1449413 passes the ignore-ancestry flag over RA to repos so that switch
now takes full account of ancestry.
