Re: a file system tree???

The actual repository is stored in berkeley DB files. The repository is
represented to you, the user, through the svn clients, *as* a tree. The
files themselves are not stored exactly as they are on the disk.

That explanation in the doc is referring to the repository conceptually,
it is not a description of how to access files that house the repository.
