That's a great piece of work you did here.

But reading http://scord.sourceforge.net/ "scord compared with existing
solutions for subversion" I see that you're missing another alternative -
fsvs.

fsvs is used primarily for binary (or at least opaque) objects. That may be
files, databases, whole filesystems (on a file-level, not block-device!), or
even a whole machine-installation.

(Although not tested for source code versioning, there's no obvious
limitation - apart from (currently) not being able to do merges).

So maybe an easier solution *could* be to switch to fsvs - see
http://fsvs.tigris.org.

Sorry for being this late ... Maybe I should append this link to the issues
you mentioned.

Regards,

Phil
