E175011 has the wrong name, the DAV layer knows nothing about relocation
which is a libsvn_client concept so SVN_ERR_RA_DAV_RELOCATED should have
been SVN_ERR_RA_DAV_REDIRECTED. It's too late to change that now but I
suppose we could change the error text and add SVN_ERR_RA_DAV_REDIRECTED
as an alias for SVN_ERR_RA_DAV_RELOCATED.

It's not a connection to mod_dav_svn but it is a working HTTP
connection. It can be used to send requests and receive responses and
any attempt to use the connection would give the redirect URL.

All the client needs to do is display the error: e.g. using trunk:

$ svnmucc -mm mkdir http://localhost:8888/obj/PERM/repo/A
svnmucc: E170013: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'http://localhost:8888/obj/PERM/repo'
svnmucc: E175011: Repository moved permanently to 'http://localhost:8888/obj/repo'; please relocate

(aside from the spurious reference to relocate which should not be part
of the DAV error anyway).

But we now need to vet everywhere that a connection is opened to ensure
that the error gets displayed.
