And, as Jeff Raskin will tell you, modes are Bad for user interfaces. Not
that Jeff is god, but I agree with him on this point.

Yah, that would be a problem. All of the other arguments against global
repository versions that I've seen have been without strong /technical/
merit, but if using global repository versions actually /prevents/ subversion
from providing some useful behavior, that would be a compelling reason to
change the versioning mechanism. Or is the versioning so locked into the
fundamental core of SVN by now that we're seeing legacy problems already
(before the 1.0 release :-).
