OK, I'll admit that's pretty impressive.

However, I am not going to pronounce on the relationship between svn and
svk. I'm not a principal of either project, so it's not my place to do so.

I will cautiously suggest that some sort of investigation of a possible
merger might be in order.

I don't care a lot about how "Eric goes to lunch" comes true. I've explained
why I think svk's approach is a bit kludgy. But perhaps we should be viewing
svk as a prototype for features that can live in the svn core.

And now I'll shut up.
