Yes, agreed. Googling is not finding me a description of it, however.

I was actually thinking of arch as the other SCM (besides Bitkeeper) that
this would put Subversion head-to-head with.

My opinion (and not a spur-of-the-moment one; I thought the possibilities
through months ago) is that this is the most natural next direction of
evolution for Subversion once the "better CVS" objective is met.

As, I judge, it now is. At a design level the move to fsfs is cleanup.
It appears to me (admittedly, a semi-outsider) that now is the *exactly*
right time to begin thinking about action diff and repo sync.

Consider yourselves nudged.
