That's a much more focussed plan. Good. Now you need to consider how to
perform the diffing and patching, how to handle conflicts, how to store the
data, and how to provide a user interface to this.

No Subversion developers have commented publically on how this feature would
fit into the Subversion project. My feeling is that it might not fit into the
command-line client, but would be better as an auxiliary program.

It would be a good idea to look also at what SER <ser@germane-software.com> has
done in the thread "Block-level commits"
<http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-06/0449.shtml>, and share ideas. He has
so far written a rather hacky script to do this sort of thing, but is
interested in doing better.

(Note that I am just discussing your ideas when they interest me, as I would
for any contributor to Subversion. I know nothing about the Summer of Code
scheme and I am going to be off-line for several weeks so I can't promise to
keep helping.)
