If what you're saying is that we should, whenever possible, use
SVN_ERR_ASSERT() rather than SVN_ERR_ASSERT_NO_RETURN(), I don't
think anyone will disagree. Anyone who wants to make that happen is
welcome to.

At the same time, I think Brane had a valid point. It is not
users_at_subversion's job to triage TortoiseSVN error reports;
TortoiseSVN's developers should be the ones triaging bug reports from
their own users. Stefan, if I am wrong here please would you be kind
enough to explain how.
