See, the problem here is that it's making the problem rarer, but not
making it go away entirely, so all you're doing is delaying the user
running into it, which means when they do hit it they're less likely
to know what's wrong.

I'm not clear what you mean by being less agressive about bumping
folder revisions. The bubble up bumping of parent folders in the
filesystem is a core feature of the filesystem, it's how it works, and
making it go away would be, uhh, hard. Did you mean something else?
