And I would agree with that entirely, if it was *syntax* we were talking
about. But it's not, it's semantics really, and when it comes to that,
then we do have to be careful not to get too far away from SVN.

as merely 'broken', but even if I could, I think we're still stuck with it,
unfortunately.
