Re: the source code in the SVN client for transferring the delta

The RA layer encapsulates the choice of URL scheme (file://, svn://, and
http://) so the client and server logics don't need to worry about it.

svnserve opens its own sockets, but with libsvn_ra_serf the syscalls
happen in a dependency library (serf).
