I am not sure about that. If you don't try to make it do too much
(i.e. a make-90%-happy approach), it should be mainly building on the
existing stuff (for example, there is already a method for applying a
delta on a WC; given a method for expressing the new revnum - as you
mentioned below - most of the code shouldn't need to care whether the
editor drive came from the server or a patch tool).

But maybe I am doing too much hand-waving here. And maybe such a
change is really only feasible in 2.0 after a WC lib rewrite.

Good point. I avoided that question 'til now, because I don't have an

Yes. Yes! :-)

If the use-cases are too demanding, we really end up with a local
changeset oriented repo (or microversioning as you called it). But
until now I didn't see anything to convince me that even a quite
simple implementation wouldn't solve the use cases of most people.
