Or, as Philip suggested, we could replace the svn_repos_hooks_setenv()
function with a new 'hooks_env_path' parameter to svn_repos_open().

Why would you want to deactivate this feature via the API?
Just don't put a hooks-env configuration file into the repository,
and don't specify a hooks-env path in the server configuration.
Isn't that good enough?

Note that the default path exists for ra_local, since there is no good
way of passing a config file path to the repos layer when ra_local
is used. Using an environment variable to store the hooks-env path was
discussed, but I don't like this approach since it doesn't scale well
to additional configuration files we might introduce in future releases.
