I've tried this idea and it seems to solve problem with AUTH_BATON,
but then I got similar problem with OPEN_TUNNEL_FUNC callbacks: JavaHL
implementation is not ready that tunnel created but JavaHL implemented
callback assumes that created tunnel will not be used after
svn_client_*() call complete.

Given all these problems I'm inclined to revert r1704048 and continue
fixing this problems in branch to keep trunk in stable state. It's
very unlikely that I will be able to solve these problems in next few
