No, that's a ginormous libsvn_fs schema change, probably an svn 2.0
thing. Definitely something we want. Also a tremendous source of
debate about how to design/implement. (It's *very hard* to come up
with a design for ACLs on a versioned filesystem!)

All that our Summer of Code student is doing is factorizing the
mod_authz_svn code into libsvn_repos, so that both mod_auth_svn and
svnserve can share the logic. They'll use the same authz-policy files.
