To run if no-one is logged-in, it needs to be a proper 'service'. This is
basically the only significant advantage of services - that they can run in
a different user-context to the person currently logged-in.

I shall take a fair bit of convincing that there is much benefit to being
able to run without anyone logged-in, at least until we start to use
TSVNCache to make its information available across the network....

My email provider has been engaged in muppetry for the last few days, and I
have only just seen the first email which Stefan sent in reply to my
original posting on the new cache.

In this, he says that the lazy update of the recursive status is unacceptable.

I don't think I agree with this. The icon overlay information is not
currently 100% reliable anyway, often requiring a F5 refresh to get it to
match the most recent state. I accept that I am proposing a slightly
different form of 'wrongness', but I still think that this would be tolerable.

I don't think 'synchronous' recursive status as we have at the moment is
ever going to viable for real use-cases. I think that offering a 'lazy'
version which is useable is an improvement.

Maybe we need to offer all three possibilities, though I dread the
additional complexity.

Cheers,

Will
