Thank you, svn_fs_node_created_rev() is what I am looking for.

The docstring is correct, but it's not clear that "path under root"
means "node-revision identified by path under root". This is one of the many places where
the DAG storage model leaks into public API semantics; what you get is literally the revision
number in with the node-revision object was created.
