Yes, Ben did too... I just hadn't got there yet. But since two people ask,
I'll push it up the priority list... :-)

1) SVN/repository could be considered an RA property on the directory (not
   sure if we want to use a prop or keep the file, but it is possible)

2) Each file/directory has a corresponding "version resource" on the server.
   The version resource is specific to the particular file and the revision
   of that file. This URL is analogous to the (file, revision) tuple. RA/DAV
   needs this commit time.

3) The URL where activities can be created. An activity is needed at commit
   time. It can only be created at a particular URL on the server, and that
   location is discovered via the PROPFIND request method. We use a PROPFIND
   at checkout time, so I get the activity URL at that time (rather than
   doing another round trip at commit time). The URL is then dropped off as
   a property on the directory.
