Hmmm. When I load the 'core' svn functions into python, I can see
that svn_stream_create() definitely exists, as well as all the other
svn_stream() functions. I imagine all you need to do is supply a
write function, and attach it to the stream via
svn_stream_set_write(). Then svn_client_cat() will push data at your
stream. Your write function can be very simple -- it can buffer the
whole file in memory if it wants to.
