There hasn't been much feedback so far because

(a) we've discussed these use cases before, for long periods of time

(b) the collective energy & attention of this developer community is
limited; we're all incredibly focused on finishing svn 1.5 right now
-- lots of frantic polishing and debugging going on.

So it's just a matter of timing. Now is not a good time to open up a
blue-sky discussion of how to re-design large pieces of subversion's
architecture. :-) Maybe after 1.5 is released?

Incidentally, one of the things I've worked on in svn 1.5 is a
tree-conflict of sorts: making the server and client deal (more
correctly) with the situation where 'svn update' wants to move a file
which you've locally modified. Rather than 'unversion' your modified
file, and add a new file, libsvn_wc now attempts to move your modified
file to the new name.
