There is also another problem with centralizing the local .svn contents
(in BDB or something else). The current system (metadata stored with the
data) allows to delete or move working hierarchies without losing space
of remote repository information. Having a central repository for the
.svn data means implement a nifty mechanism to delete metadata when the
data is gone or to sync metadata with moved data. Not impossible but add
a great deal of (useless) complexity to the client part.
