Reusing the RA design is worth considering. The interaction between the
repos hooks and FS write-lock makes it bit more difficult. This new FS
API will have a corresponding repos API that runs pre-lock and
post-lock. The repos layer would run all pre-locks before invoking FS
and the FS callback would invoke the repos callback. The repos callback
would run the post-lock hooks but we don't want to do that while holding
the FS write-lock. So the FS callbacks have to happen after the
write-lock is released.

   svn_repos_lock(paths, server_callback)
     for path in paths:
       run pre-lock
     svn_fs_lock(paths, repos_callback)
       take write-lock
       for path in paths:
         create lock
       release write-lock
       for path in paths:

     if lock
       run post-lock
