Even if its a bug fix, the normal way to fix it would be to add a new
ProplistCallback2 interface with the proper signature, but since we have
org.apache.subversion.javahl.callback.ProplistCallback, there isn't a
point to do that, but to keep the original signature.

However, given this is released code and 1.7 has been out there a while
and the new signature is correct and people may have compiled against
that, it seems we're in a tough spot.
