My thought was that the WC code doesn't need to be changed to
implement blame/log caching right now - the blame/log commands
could be worked on to come up with the "right" implementation
separate from any WC changes, and then when the WC code is redone
for 2.0 those caching optimizations could be designed into the
new 2.0 WC code.

In short, let's experiment in a client app using the current WC,
find out what works, and *then* change the WC.

~/.subversion/config is the logical place, I think, since the
caching/non-caching behavior is likely to be a user-specific
preference, not a repo-specific one, i.e. some people do a lot
of off-line work and/or use the log/blame command more than
others, and they do it consistently for all of the projects
they participate in...

Of course, I could be totally off-base here, but most people I
know are pretty predictable that way... :)
