You are not wrong, that is basically the idea. So if you want to go in
there by hand (or by script) and compress or decompress the text-base
then having the suffix be .gz makes life easier, and also makes it
more clear that they're just regular gzip files. So I think that
sticking with the .svn-base.gz would be better.
