      Description

      As described in issue #2842:
      
         The editor vtable's delete_entry() function is path-kind ignorant,
         which means that client-side editors trying to compensate for
         over-informative server-side editor drivers don't have enough information
         to correctly distinguish whether a deletion of an immediate child should
         be allowed to pass thru when using svn_depth_files.
      
      If I, as a depth-filtering editor, am told to delete to delete a file in
      svn_depth_files mode, I know it's cool to do so.  If I'm told to delete a
      directory, it's not so cool.  But to make that call, I need to know what path
      kind I'm dealing with.  But the positioning of the depth filtering editor makes
      path kind determination ... difficult.
