Just to add another data point, we should also consider what happens
when
(post-1.0) Subversion supports cross-repository links. This means we
may have
two seemingly independent nodes, where just the ancestry reveals they
originated from the same node in another repo...

IMO, the best approach would be to just use plain nodes + version# (w/o
branch
marks in the versions) and to use e.g. topological sort on the ancestry
set to
detect 'related' nodes. But then, since somebody else is doing it and
not I,
I'll stop giving unsolicited advice

right now.
