After giving it more thought, I agree that changing other cases isn't required
and justified in context of this nomination. I undid the part of the change
touching other calling sites, except for those in dump.c that are required to
solve issue #4598, and updated the nomination.

This leaves us with a couple of related issues in Subversion 1.9.2 (fixed in
trunk), but we can handle them with separate nominations:

(1) svn_fs_contents_different() can produce invalid results under circumstances
    described in issue 4554 [1]. In practice this means that, for instance,
    one can have a working copy that misses an update in a file that happened
    in the repository, and produces "Base checksum mismatch" errors on attempts
    to commit changes in this file.

    This issue was addressed by r1673875 [2] and follow-ups.

(2) svn_fs_props_different() relies on MD5 checksum for the comparison.

    This issue was addressed by r1705638 [3] and follow-ups.

I'll look into doing that.
