Yes, opaque collections will be a great feature.

In the meantime, I periodically run:

  tar --exclude \*~ -cf - Mail | bzip2 -9 >mail.tar.bz2

After an initial `svn add mail.tar.bz2' I'm now good-to-go. It
adds a layer of complexity, but the revision history is still
intact. Man, I love binary diffs.
