      Currently, svn_ra_dav__get_file() will just push svndiff
      data at its output stream, if the ra session was created
      with a base_dir (in other words, the top of a tree in
      which base texts can be found).
      See comment in libsvn_client/switch.c:svn_client_switch(),
      near the bottom of the function, which currently says
        /* ### FIXME: we shouldn't be passing a NULL base-dir to
           open_ra_session.  This is a just a way of forcing the server
           to send a fulltext instead of svndiff data against something
           in our working copy.  We need to add a callback to
           open_ra_session that will fetch a 'source' stream from the
           WC, so that ra_dav's implementation of get_file() can use the
           svndiff data to construct a fulltext.  */
      Note also that svn_client_diff has to do the same trick (pass
      NULL instead of a base_dir), and it should be tweaked as
      soon as we finish the solution described in the above comment.
