The problem is more subtle than that and changing the proxy to always
do this might blunt the value of a proxy.  For example, commands like
update and status -u which are serviced totally by a proxy need to be
lock-aware.  If these commands had to also go back to the master you
would lose the benefits of the proxy.

Our slaves do not currently query the master for anything, they just
proxy certain HTTP requests back to the master.  Changing mod_dav_svn
to make a call to the master to get information, rather than getting
it from the local repository would be an all new product.
