        I think arch-style revision libraries are the current best way to go
        here. Better file systems in the next few years will yield other
        approaches. If you want to be BSD specific, you could just use
        directory stacks.

To expand on that a bit --

Having a tool that can generate reports about various revisions and
their relations is nice, but why should such a tool be in any way
intricately tied to the revision control system implementation?

Why does your delta-window foo have _anything_ to do with this at all?

That's an example of a way in which svn looks too complicated to me:
you push in here and it pops out there; delta combiner screws cvs
annotate. Things like that shouldn't happen.
