Oh, I think I forgot objection 3, again to Proposal 2:

   "It's difficult, *from a .BAT or other script*, to invoke a
    program in the background."

In other words, it's easier for us to have the fs code spawn some
deltifying program in the background, than to have a script spawn
'svnadmin deltify' (or any other program) in the background.

Is that an accurate summary of one of the objections?
