+1 (on gregs position for this issue)

lets not introduce more performance overheads based on a corner case.

svn as it stands is way toooo slooow folks... please don't get
distracted from
that fact. i'm dealing with 20 minutes commits, 15 minute status

also, svn already does way too many checksums from what i've been able
