I may have contributed to confusion by being to circumstantial, but
Erik has cleared up this meanwhile I suppose.

Alright, even this part of this thread has developed from what was
just an aside of mine, while the OP may have left thread and
Subversion for good & CVS since long. ;)
What I really tried to say is that developing a new print function
may take you a week and you would only need the printing
category of the whole application and probably the central UI to
reference your new function. Or for designing a new wheel you
don't need anything but the steering part of the whole car while
Sally can limit her checkout to the backseat design.
OTOH we can't say OK, today I add the descriptions of a thousand
screws to the joints category of our website and tomorrow I
checkout the kitchen category for adding in the next couple of days
all the new stuff manufacturers have cooked up for the fair.
It rather is I have to add a new screw and thereby notice I should
reference (link) to it in the description page for the kitchen
construction kit, and also that one for the mower repair kit, and - oh
my! I nearly forgot! - in the tools section we added this all-new
super self-turning screwdriver last week this damned screw is just
designed for. So I need to have all the stuff. If we'd do this based
on database I would have all stuff at my fingertips just the same.
For the example a database may indeed be the better solution
though locking records might become a problem, but it is just an
example, we don't sell mowers, kitchens, screws, and tools. ;)
We've gone astray from first principles.
We've lost sight of the rule that individual freedom and ingenuity
are at the very core of everything that we've accomplished.
Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
