I may have overlooked something obvious, but how would garbage
collection in a shared text-base tree work? Attempting to keep track
of all WCs using it is probably fragile, so I suppose the shared
/bases/ would just keep growing - or is there an aging mechanism that
throws out base files that haven't been used for a while when the tree
reaches a certain size? The client must then be prepared to re-create
any base file that turns out to be missing. (Annoying, if working
off-line.)

With non-shared bases trees (one per WC), a single rm -rf will remove
the whole WC and nothing but the WC.
