No, just a normal Subversion filesystem. I wrote an RPC layer using Ice to
expose svn_fs.h over the network. The RPC layer splits input paths on /'s, for
each path element prepends one new directory with a name based on the md5 of the
path element and then joins all of them back together before using any functions
in svn_fs.h.
