      Description

      Not all commits are done in the presence of a
      working copy;  therefore, after the client sends a
      final MERGE request,  it's often wasteful to for
      mod_dav_svn to send humongous merge-responses full
      of vsn-rsc-urls.
      
      In particular, it kind of ruins the "constant time
      tagging" feature when you run 'svn cp URL URL'.  
      Understandably, if I did the copy in my wc and
      committed, the tag couldn't possibly be
      constant-time;  but 'svn cp URL URL' should
      definitely be constant time.
      
      One idea is to send some kind of custom header in
      the MERGE request that means, "please send minimal
      response."
