One of way of looking at it is that David's proposed system wouldn't
be a second implementation of the libsvn_wc interface (like fsfs vs
bdb), but a second "checkout storage" library that libsvn_client knows
how to deal with. Although that might just end up making
libsvn_client too complicated.

(For what it's worth, I think this is a great idea to work on; my only
concern is that if this ends up becoming svn 2.0 anyway, we should
consider whether or not it makes more sense to look towards a
checkout-metadata-as-partial-repository method. But that's a longer
term concern anyway.)
