In defining an extended patch format, it seems like there are a lot of
different goals to choose from here. And they all seem to be mutually
exclusive. What's most important to us?

  * arch compatibility?

  * svk compatibility?

  * 'patch' compatibility? (i.e. defining a format whereby
tree-structure changes are just ignored by Larry Wall's 'patch'?)

  * trying to use what we have? (tweaking our dumpfile format)

I think we can choose only one of these goals. :-)
