I mentioned something like this in a recent slashdot post
(http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=29536&cid=3172558), so I think it's a
great idea. Also, It would be really totally awesome if there were hooks so
an IDE (like an Emacs svn module, etc.) could be notified of conflicting
changes and flag/color-code/popup-error the conflict.

Speaking of IDE hooks, has anyone looked at making, for example, an Emacs
svn-major-mode? Is there an API that would make something like that
possible? Personally I don't know LISP at all, so I couldn't be much help,
unfortunately -- just wondering if any LISP gurus have tried anything.
