This part is an excellent overview; if it's not already in the C doxygen
docs or in HACKING, it should be (mutatis mutandis).

I think the last two names here are too similar; it'll be way too easy
to mis-tab-complete them for each other. Suggest to rename the second
one to stop_iteration to match the name of SVN_ERR_STOP_ITERATION.

Haven't reviewed the rest of the patch, nor the mapping of
svn_error_t::apr_err values to this hierarchy.

Cheers,

Daniel
