I think this is too big to be a Summer of Code task, unfortunately.
Asking a student to come in and (in one summer) understand Subversion's
code, grok previous design discussions, grok existing patches, lead us
to a consensus, and implement it... Well, just seems unrealistic for
this task, although for less complex tasks it is of course exactly what
we expect (and usually get) in Summer of Code.

I'm going through our issue tracker right now to look for some more
Summer of Code ideas. Anyone who has an idea, please post it here.
