If only I were able to reply to all postings! :-)

I've heard recently that someone may be starting to work on optional
text bases. There have been false alarms on this before, so don't
jump for joy yet.

(Thanks for the nice mention of the book, too. I like to think it's
more about volunteer communities than about software per se, but that
may a fantasy.)

It's funny, it's one of those things that everyone agrees is important
(and I think most people agree that non-existent text bases are more
important than compressed text bases), but no one thinks it's
important enough to work on. It's not the easiest problem in
Subversion, but it's certainly not the hardest either. Someday,
