How about svn_checksum_to_cstring_canonical() which is just this macro:
#define svn_checksum_to_cstring_canonical(checksum, pool)
svn_checksum_to_cstring_display2((checksum), SVN_CHECKSUM_CSTRING_LOWER, (pool))

I think we've spent more time talking about this than the time it takes to
review those changes. Those are really easy changes since all they're doing is
adding the SVN_CHECKSUM_CSTRING_LOWER and changing
svn_checksum_to_cstring_display to svn_checksum_to_cstring_display2.

Does the macro I suggest above resolve the problem for you? I'll be happy to
go find those cases and change to them, before or after the branch merges. But
I don't really want to bother with that if you're not willing to budge on the
leaving svn_checksum_to_cstring_display() alone.

I'll fix this as well (actually I already fixed it but I'm seeing error leak
aborts that appear to be pre-existing that I haven't figured out yet, they may
be from my local changes that turn on the automatic pager).
