Anybody working on Issue 525: allow working copies w/out text-base?

does anybody work on this issue? If not, can you help and push me in
the right direction? I looked through the subversion code and
understood some of it, but I'm still lost when searching for the right
places to modify.

AFAICS, to solve this issue, there are two items to work on:
- don't create the text-base copy in the first place when doing a
checkout or update
- retrieve a base copy from the repository, when doing a diff or checkin
- anything else I'm missing?

So, here are my questions:

Where is the initial text-base copy created? I believe, it's done
somewhere in update_editor.c in install_file(), but can't really
figure out where and how it's done.

I figured out, how to retrieve a file from the repository. Again, I
don't know _where_ to retrieve the base copy and how to hand on the
needed parameters (mainly svn_client_ctx_t) to the places deep down in
the code. Perhaps I should stuff it into some *_baton structure?

Thanks for any help! Or far better, someone else providing a patch ;-)

Regards, Olaf.
