Re: svn commit: r1552324 - Introduce svn_ra_session_dup()

Perhaps we should then start by looking at the documentation of the public API, which states this requirement instead of qualifying a single function 3 levels deeper as having a problem without looking at the other places that have the same requirements 'as documented’.

I explicitly documented the requirement and even with this requirement it is a useful function for the cases as in libsvn_client.. Should we really repeat and discuss that at ever level?

It is not a magic function that will solve everything for everyone. But that is why we have different API entry points for different features and not a single c function that performs every operation.

The svn_ra API is a separate, stand-alone public API. Your argument that
the implementation is safe because of some incidental internals of
libsvn_client is, frankly, nonsense.
