Ah! Come right over here, to ... issue 707!


At least for the bundle part. Chris' comments in
cocoa-dev@lists.apple.com aren't completely addressed by this, but it
does cover the nib/rtfd case.

Although I have to admit, having crawled around libsvn_wc to get a feel
for what this would take its current designation as "bite-sized"
might be taken with a grain of salt...
