Re: 2 key features - can they be implemented or does anyone know a workaround

Yes, a lot like Issue 2727 -- looks like its under way... However no mention
of an import --replace switch in that ticket.

The Import is more important to us so that the revisioning and deltas can be
used. Is there any other way to put files directly into a repository
(bypassing wc co, ci)?

And on mucc, thanks a bunch! -- but we installed subversion using the ports
system in FreeBSD... I'm not great with server administration... Anyone have
an instruction set for making svnmucc on FreeBSD with Ports?
