Re: current plan for WC

I wasn't able to read it out of the description, but does this plan move
all WC metainformation, except for the pristine sources, into a single
place? Or will the information still reside inside .svn/
subdirectories?

If it is all moved into a single place, will it support moving the WC to
a different directory?

Here's my use case: I have my unix/linux home directory, or at least a
reasonable subset of it (config files, browser bookmark files), checked
into svn.

The first thing I do on a new machine, is to check out this home
directory in a subdirectory. Then I move the .svn/ directories from the
checked out WC, and into the home directory (I don't care about the
actual checked out files at this point), preserving the directory
hierarchy.

Then I do an "svn up" and once more pull down "missing" files, and then
I think about handling the WC files that are different. What I mostly
do here, is check in those files that have been generated when creating
the user (e.g. "default config files on Ubuntu Hardy"), just to get them
into the version control, then I pull out the version preceeding them,
and checking them in again, and then I start making adjustments.

Will this use case be preserved by the new WC?

Ie. can I move the WC metainformation to the home directory after
checking out in a different directory?
