I didn't think at all that that was your agenda.
OTOH, IMHO, your posts were a bit long-winded, no
offense intended.

I, too, think this is a worthy goal. I also think
that getting Subversion 1.0 would help in that goal --
the more Subversion users, the more support (both
moral and developer) there would be for Subversion

Part of engineering is weighing out short-term and
long-term goals. Good engineering shouldn't let
short-term goals completely subvert long-term goals
even though they may delay them sometimes. From what
you say, it may be a little more difficult to get arch
to use svn if the upfront design isn't done right now,
but it doesn't sound like it'll be an infeasible task
to do later on.
