But Chris is getting vsn-rsrc-urls in his .svn/ area eventually,
right? His point, I think, is that if you do a checkout and get
specific revisions of specific files, then there's no reason caches
shouldn't be able to use this fact. Yet our checkout caused no
caching at all -- what a waste.

The client may have *requested* a URL whose meaning changes over time,
but what it got back was a specific revision of each file, and at some
point, the server must have handed it those vsn-rsrc-urls, because
.svn/ has them after the checkout yet the client certainly couldn't
have constructed them itself.

Regarding Mike's concerns: did you read them?

(This may not be rocket science, but that doesn't do us much good if we
can't tell the difference between it and rocket science :-) .)
