Bah. We had a much better representation of this a loooong time ago.
We called it "the XML editor". Back before Subversion could talk to a
repository or a database, it would checkout, update, and commit from
XML files. These files were XML representations of our editor drives,
*exactly* denoting how to transfer one tree into another, binary diffs
and propchanges and everything.
