It means that there is some old work to consider when designing a new format.
One is an extended, XML-based, patch format. It will represent subversions
internal way of describing a change (a so called editor drive, see svn_delta.h)
as a set of XML elements.

The other format one might want to look at is the format produced by
svnadmin dump. That's a MIME-like format.

Note that SoC is closed for new applications, so we may not need to clarify
it for that reason for some time:-)

Fixed in r19734. Thanks.
