From my experience such last minute API changes especially without
real usage/UI often leads to problems and release delays.

So I'm in favor to revert svn_repos_info*/svn_fs_info_* API on trunk,
make branch and bring API back with UI implementation.

Subversion 1.8 already has many useful features. And svnadmin info
would be first feature for 1.9. It would one more argument to release
1.9 earlier :)
