Re: text-base penalty: A proposed solution

I understand your arguments about the cost of text-bases, and it might
be nice if they were optional. However, this would require
significant changes to the design of libsvn_wc, and that's not going
to happen before 1.0.

If you can come up with a simple and obviously correct patch to
implement it before then, that would be great. But I'm pretty certain
that any such patch will not be simple.

By the way, your list of the disadvantages says:

> o Thwarts tools like cscope that scan for all source files
> o Makes `find . -name \*.[cCh]|xargs grep SOMETHING` much less useful

No, we protect against these problems by giving those files special
extensions. You shouldn't be having these problems; if you are,
please report them as bugs.
