Okay, here is what I am about to do:

1) Exploit the BDB problem with SVN_FS_TXN_CLIENT_DATE not working as
   expected in a separate test.  Probably, I am also going to create an issue,
   because without a fix we'd be shipping Subversion 1.9 with a new transaction
   flag that doesn't work properly on every FS backend.

2) Change svn_fs_txn_proplist() and svn_fs_txn_prop() to hide the internal
   transaction properties like svn:check-locks and squash this change into the
   V1 patch.  This change would not affect the visibility of svn:date property
   for transactions, because the property is not internal; we are only going to
   stop exposing svn:check-ood, svn:check-locks and svn:client-date in our
   FS API calls.
