Seems like a very usefull feature.
Having that many files in a single directory is *bad* - even if your
filesystem allows it.
Ever did a "ls -la" and got more than 5000 lines? How do you look at that?
Of course, if the filenames are trivial (as is the case here) that's not so
much an issue; but if you simply do something like "cd ... ; ls " and your
connection *hangs* because it's *slow* (thing 64kBit or even 9600!) you are
(at least) not happy.

So yes, please go that route.


BTW: If you do some changes in FSVS, how about issue 2286
(http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2286) "Identical files
should share storage space in repository"? Pretty please :-) ?
