I remember, I was very excited when I read the first time through the
svn design document. The lack of unique-revision and unique-commit-logs
was something that always bothered me in CVS. But I was probably biased
by the fact that I tried to write a tool to generate a "revision tree"
from the output of "cvs log". The fact that it is hard to implement
branch support for cvs2svn shows very clearly that the CVS way is
a Bad Thing(TM).

Further, I think that svn is still too much file-based. But I promised
to Karl not to bring up this topic again until 1.0 is out of the door.
So I _don't_ want to discuss it now. If you are curious about what
I mean, feel free to check the first paragraph of
for the issue and
for a proposal how to solve it.
