In WebDAV/DeltaV language, I believe this is known as
"auto-versioning". It would allow your dumb (non-deltaV-aware) Win32
or OSX dav-browsers to just 'drag and drop' files into the repository.

Currently, mod_dav_svn doesn't support this feature, though it's
planned for SVN 2.0. It wouldn't be that hard to implement, really.
(I've thought about doing it for fun. :-)
