I'm not sure what you mean by "archive script" here - it's not asvn, is it?

FSVS is not just backup/restore - it does *versioning* of full directory
structures, just like subversion or asvn. But it is designed for fast
operation on many entries - so it automatically adds/removes files, and so
on.

You're right, the title is a bit misleading. I changed it.

As asvn uses the svn binary, you have the .svn directories scattered all over
the data ... just another difference to FSVS.

Well, I'd suggest you try FSVS ... I'm doing more or less similar things, and
FSVS is *way* faster for that purpose.
