Well, for starters you're wrong about that. In vc dirs emacs
makes backups with the version number:

0 fvwm% ls configure.in*
configure.in configure.in.~1.253.~

I imagine it has always done this, but i know that it has at
least done it since 2000 with GNU Emacs 20.

More importantly, there is *no problem* in svn working copies.
svn uses .svn/tmp there. The problem is the operations outside
the wc.

You're suggesting emacs gunk as a workaround now? How many
workarounds will be suggested before a problem is acknowledge. I
don't even have emacs installed on all my systems. When i'm
working on the server that hosts my svn repo, $EDITOR is vi (no,
not vim, so i don't want to hear any vim workarounds either).
