Ah, I understand now. Let's do a checksum here. I'll spell everything

** At the moment, if I run 'svn subcommand -rFUTURE foo.c', I may get
one of two answers back:

   1. "path not found in rFUTURE."

   2. a successful reply, though the future thing sitting in foo.c's
path may be totally unrelated.

** In your proposal, we'd get back one of

   1. "path not found in rFUTURE."

   2. "path found in rFUTURE, but is unrelated to foo.c".
   3. a successful reply (assuming the same object is in the same place
in rFUTURE.)

** And in some ideal future, we'd get back one of

   1. "object doesn't exist by any name in rFUTURE."

   2. "object exists at N different locations in rFUTURE, please try
again using one of these URLs:"

   3. a successful reply, assuming the object exists in only one place

All good?
