So there seems to be a "market" for that mode of operation.

That's just another way of saying they support the SVNKit equivalent RA
API. And as I pointed out, svn_mtcc is just another wrapper around that
same API. (That doesn't mean its useless, of course).

The ideas is to separate our core functionality from extensions built on
top of it, such as svnmucc and svnversion. I would like /everything/ of
that sort to go into a new library. As long as we have separate libs for
separate API layers, we should be consistent; otherwise we may as well
stuff svn_wc, svn_client and svn_ra into one library, and svn_repos and
svn_fs into another.
