Unless I messed up, entirely possible as I'm not a shell programmer, the test
is still useful for testing SVN 1.6.  Under SVN 1.6 $non_reflog should be
'not-a%40{0}reflog' as before.

IIRC its silently does it during the "svn cp".

Dunno, lemme check...

$ source ~/bin/svn16
$ svnadmin --version
svnadmin, version 1.6.18 (r1303927)
$ svnadmin create svnrepo
$ mkdir project project/trunk project/branches project/tags
$ echo foo > project/trunk/foo
$ svn import -m 'test import' project

If you make it with SVN 1.6 its still there with SVN 1.7.  That's good, it
means you can ship a prebuilt repository and check it against SVN 1.7.

The bad news is the new code segfaults on it.  I don't know if that's the SVN
1.7 API choking on its own stuff or because of my changes or both.  If you set
up the test I can try and fix it.  Otherwise I'll just flounder in shell.
