I'm not sure that was a major feature of the BDB backend design. A
side-effect, sure, but not something we were banking on. Consider the way
branches work today. If you copy /trunk to some branch and start committing
on a file on the branch, that file's representation on /trunk will no longer
be fulltext (because while it is at the tip of /trunk, it *also* is in the
non-tip lineage of its branch location). So, it was never the case that
HEAD was necessarily all fulltexts. The most recent node-revision in a line
of history, yes, but who knows where that might be path-wise.
