Hello, reality check? :)

I said "directory and file with the same name in your working copy," and
working copies just happen to live in quite ordinary file systems.

And no, Subversion is a version control system for disk files that just
happens to use a subset of WebDAV/DeltaV as _one_ way of connecting to
the repository. You're putting the cart before the horse.
