From the storage point of view, I can see this. But what about the
'release' number? You wouldn't want the version number of, say, Emacs,
to be bumped as a result of a change to another program, say, Mutt, even
if they're - because the same person is developing both - in the
same repository, right?

Talking of release numbers, now that I'm trying to work out how to
assign release numbers to my own s/w, I'd like to know how it is done
in SVN itself: what does "version 1.0" actually mean? I mean it
must really map to repository revision, right? How is the association
made? Is it those darn' properties again? ;-)
