I've seen revisions where millions (yes, I said millions) of files were
changed at one time, so I feel ra_serf needs to be able to handle
10's of millions of files in trunk alone during an update without
needing TBs of memory...

(I'm not saying I would recommend using Subversion in this way, just
 that I have seen older versions abused in amazing ways...)
