      Description

      Some ra_svn operations don't report errors to the client.  Instead,
      the errors cause the server process to exit, and the client sees a cryptic
      
        svn: Connection closed unexpectedly
      
      Here are the offenders:
      
        * update, switch, status, and diff, at the point where the client
      finishes the report and the server begins driving an editor.  This is
      a tricky case, and I don't immediately know how to fix it.  An error
      from svn_repos_finish_report can happen either before or after editor
      operations have begun, so it's hard to know what state the protocol is in.
      
        * commit, where it calls svn_repos_checkout.  Again, it is hard to
      know what state the protocol is in when that function returns an error.
      
        * get-file and log, while they are streaming file or directory
      contents to the client.  This is a simple enough matter of sending
      each part of the stream in a command-response instead of as a bare
      string or tuple.
