What your missing is that "timestamps get screwed" is not normal
operation as far as I am concerned. As far as I can see, storing the
working file size is likely to be an improvement for anyone using
Subversion in a conventional development environment. The major
implementation difficulty is that the IO abstraction layer hides the
stat() call so the the size information is not readily available where
needed, but that's hardly a showstopper.
