omg. yes please complicate all that more and more so we can finally
crunch it down to a "change description language", which will record
insert 2 lines and indent the lines in between ... i mean pulling in vim
or emacs into SVN would give that feature quite easily.

if you have really such disk space problems ... you should either
consider if need some more disks or think if you _really_ need all
your stuff under version control. otherwise i can just say:

keep it simple stupid.

just my 2 cents,
