I thihk there has to be a way to say all of the following:

 1. do not use a hooks-env file at all
 2. use the default hooks-env file
 3. use a specific, non-default hooks-env file

Given that just calling svn_repos_open2 will (?) result in behaviour
(1), then svn_repos_hooks_setenv should result in (2) if hooks_env_path
is NULL, and (3) otherwise.

I think it would be a bit too involved to represent the tristate nature
of the option in a svn_repos_open3; although we could introduce a
"default"-type constant value (e.g., an empty string) to represent
either (1) or (2) (with NULL representing the other of these two options).

But in any case, there should never be an option to use a separate
result pool; any storage associated with the env file path must have the
same lifetime as the repository handle.
