Lieven, did you want to take a crack at this? I think you could say
it much better than me.

- fsfs transaction name problem
- DAV write-through proxy feature. Someone posted a question on
users@ without a reply:
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2007-07/0100.shtml
I still wonder if it could be made to work cleaner, such as use
svnsync without any hooks.
- svnmerge conversion script? I think this has been talked about but
I do not know who plans to do it.
