I don't agree that this is what modules should be about. If the FS doesn't
know about modules, how can SVN answer questions about them? For instance,
"what changed in this module between revs A and B?". If you're using
modules
to gather source for product that you're going to build, that's an
important
question to be able to answer. Modules are (IMO, naturally) all about
sharing
source. That's definitely a source control function.
