[Beating a dead horse]

I still much prefer the idea of a GUID living in a normal file, next
to 'format'. In my mind, the GUID is a property of the *repository*,
not the filesystem. From a design standpoint, I think of the
filesystem as just a mindless data store, whereas the repository is
the more interesting wrapper with a unique identity (GUID) and unique
policies (hooks).

I can't remember... did someone have a good technical argument for
storting the GUID as a revprop?
