Re: Nested/fine-grained Revisions?

you could write a script to (or manually) apply the differences between
revision N and N + 1 - that would get you the same commits from the branch
applied to the trunk

svn doesnt do this by itself though so it wont be an atomic unit
the only atomic unit svn has in the commit / revision
