nothing, that's essentially the same technique eric was using, and i
agree it makes sense. look at the docs i committed last night and see
if it makes sense to you.

i agree it would be nice to have subversion do the diffing/committing
for you (and blair has a script that does some of the work), but it's
not really a dealbreaker in my opinion.
