I think John was just transmitting what he felt Molle Bestefich was

I too get the feeling that what Molle wants can't easily be done in
Subversion, and that the best answer is to use the 'svnversion'
program (which was, after all, written to be a workaround for exactly
this problem). However, maybe we're misunderstanding what Molle wants?

Molle, is there a mail that contains a complete (edge-cases included)
description of the feature proposal as it stands right now? If not,
could you post one? What's described in


is completely uncompelling (to me, anyway). I'm -1 on it. But maybe
the proposal has evolved since then?
