+ BASE is what we get from the server. It is the *absolute* pristine copy.
    You need to use checkout, update, switch, or commit to alter your view of
    the repository.
+ In the BASE tree, each node corresponds to a particular node-rev in the
+ repository. It can be a mixed-revision tree. Each node holds either a
+ copy of the node-rev as it exists in the repository (if presence =
+ 'normal'), or a place-holder (if presence = 'absent' or 'excluded' or
+ 'not-present').
