Distributed repositories of course! I'm an anal RDBMS data modeler kind
of guy. I like to have things in tables so that FKs can be used when the
underlying RDBMS supports it.

I also eventually want the RepositoryID to become part of the
NodeRevision table's primary key to handle BitKeeper like push/pull/sync
behavior. (Either that, or supporting RepositoryIDs in NodeRevision
primary key values that are used in ancestor set recording.)
