Let me take the opportunity to say that I hartely agree with the fact
that there's no need to 'wait' until 2.0, but that we can do this
'now' and introduce additional APIs when and where required.

Let me also take the opportunity to say that severable working copies
in libsvn_wc will probably not work as great as it looks at first
glance: there are operations which store tree changes higher up in the
tree in all subtrees and nodes (recursive copy being one of them).
These subtrees can't be severed without breaking the working copy.

Also, I hope the design of the new working copy library will help to
create better abstractions for the internal APIs. Hopefully, some of
that work can be used to re-do parts of the current libsvn_wc (since
that has its merits too IMO)!

bye,

Erik.
