Yes, I think we all agree. Have you seen:


(especially the first)?

I think r23306 (see issue #1233) may have added something close to what
you need. We might have to extend it to more operations than just 'add'
and 'import', though. Can you take a look? (I'm busy with another
issue right now.)

For some reason, your mail does not appear to have made it into the
tigris.org archive...


...which is worrisome. Fortunately, I can find it in the svn.haxx.se
archives here:


I've added it to issue #1002.

I'll now send a mail to the tigris.org admins, CC'ing you, about the
fact that your post doesn't seem to be in the archives there.
