It's a great idea, but won't work. Currently Subversion requests
REPORTs from the server. These are unique for every single session
between a client and a server. Thus, the REPORT response we're using
However, right as we speak, a thread is going on in the dev@ mailing
list (I forwarded this mail there) about the usefulness of being able
to cache HTTP trafic between a client and the repository server.
Maybe you can step in and add something to that thread?
