Just wanted to say: if you haven't found another API (in svn_ra.h) that
solves your problem, I'd be happy to consider an extension of the API
that omits only file contents. (Please review svn_editor.h before
designing such an extension.)

Let me warn you, though: it'll be a moderately large patch, since
extending the on-the-wire API involves patching all 3 network servers
and all 4 network clients (libsvn_ra_*, svnserve, mod_dav_svn).
