user decides what to use as file-compare (was: really, really force please!!!)

i think dan is right here:

a good version control system should let the user decide what is used
to decide if a file is "new" or "changed". options include:
- date/time
- checksum
  (and this is the only case where i would actually
  care that it is a cryptographically good checksum)
- contents
or a combinantion of the above.

this information can be retrieved from the server, or from the .svn
folder, which also the user wants to decide (and with this option the
issue "my working copy is too big, but my server is fast" is a
non-issue).

-s.
