That is exactly what I was thinking about when I wrote "Option 3...
Checkpoints are commits in a local repository embedded in the WC"
towards the end of that document. My feeling is that both the amount of
effort required just to get that far, and the explosion of further
possibilities it would open up, make it too heavy-weight for my current
project, but I would definitely like to explore that possibility further.
