Agreed, but it doesn't follow the "normal model" for CVS/SVN operation. I
could easily see it as a future extension, so much so, that I'd say that the
model *will* be available at some point. And when it does, then these
questions can come back up, and the code can be beat into submission for
some great performance gains.

Until then, requiring users to "svn edit" *before* work is a bit of a
stretch from the current model. While we could superficially do such a thing
quite quickly, I'd worry that we'll start missing holes here and there.

Cheers,
