Wow, what a night of sleep can do for the mind.

I re-read your mail, and you're completely right. I totally
botched my reading of it last night (in more ways than the one pointed
out, too).

Sorry, Ben.

Because I haven't finished coding the svn_ra ViewCVS plugin. It works
okay -- let's you view directories and logs and such, and because it
uses the RA layer for access, it means you can hit a ViewCVS instance
on one machine that is exposing repositories on an entirely different
machine. But there are some things that the regular
direct-repos-access module can do that the svn_ra one can't right now.
