Sorry, Julian. I guess I was sensing more along the lines of "The current
behavior is a problem" (assertion) than of "Is the current behavior a
problem?" (question) as I read the thread. Of course I wouldn't discourage
anyone from stepping back to evaluate Subversion's behavior at a higher
level. I guess I would just caution against not stepping back *far enough*.
