Thanks David, this works really great!

One thing you might have some clues - if you enable pipelining on
win32 (look for IS_WIN32 in SVK::Mirror::Backend::SVNRa), it segfaults
with "free to wrong pool".
I traced this down to perl's fork() on win32 and apr pool hating each
other.  I am assuming the pseudo-process that fork() is using on win32
are stepping on each other when we are doing our own memory management
via apr pools...
