Eek! Yup, I see.

If the parent is missing, then we fall back to the local revision. The
parent will (generally) be *at least* the local revision. Quite possibly, it
will have been updated to new revisions and we just never worry about
tweaking it in the subdirs.

Yah... that might work.

(although I'd still have issues with the version resource URL that gets
 stored for each file/dir; but if they can be switched over to use node IDs
 then I could skip updating those unless a file/dir truly changed)

You're right. Again. :-)

Okay. Let's say an "attach" problem, then :-)
