We have been reporting errors via callbacks since 1.2, look at
svn_ra_lock(). We have done it again in 1.9, look at

Also, is the function clearly failing when it reports a verification
error? If it is correctly diagnosing that the repository is corrupt
then the function is in some sense succeeding. I suppose we could
change svn_repos_notify_t.err to some other type, but svn_error_t is a
convenient way to package the information.
