WC split

While talking with a few people here at ApacheCon about SVN, I had an
interesting thought about WC and its mgmt of the ./SVN/ directoryand its
contents.

It might be nice in the future to split WC into two components: one for
storing SVN's metadata/thurds, and one for the other crawling/editing
facilities. This would allow us to create a number of variations for storing
metadata, which can take advantage of specific platform functionality. For
example:

  - use NTFS streams for the metadata
  - use MacOS resource forks
  - use a central DB of the data, rather than per-dir
  - use DAV's features to keep the data on the server

I'll add this to the IDEAS file for post-1.0 thinking.

Cheers,
