I can save old auth baton id in cache_entry once I pass it to
svn_ra_open4() and compare it to the current value in

I considered this approach, but decided even didn't list it as an
option since it's very fragile and introduce complex dependencies
between objects.

Exactly. Proper solution would be to expose this limitation as part of
our API by accepting AUTH_BATON and TUNNEL_FUNC as parameter for
svn_client_context_create() function and never expose it in
svn_client_ctx2_t. But this will require to revv all svn_client_*()
functions. I'm not sure that it worth the effort, but I can do it if
everybody agree that this is good and right thing.
