I like that notion too. In fact that may make it even easier
to implement. I still think an entries file would be worth
keeping around for other potential optimizations though. But
the notion of only storing the duplicate file when you do
"svn edit" is a good one.

As for your comment about Moore's law, I agree in principle.
But I don't think we should go out of our way to prove it :)
