dude, you're just not getting it. if the entire .svn directory is gone,
there is not much of a problem. same with a compressed version. the
problem is when the contents of the directory is modified in a
non-deterministic way. that may have non-deterministic/unwanted effects
on your wc/repository. if the directory were handled atomically and
opaque to most tools (ie,compressed or TARd, this is less likely to
happen. please reread the last...well, *all* of the last messages.

1. it allows people to more easily distinguish messages that are
responses to their messages, especially for lists with high mail volume
where you might not have time to read all of them.
2. it seems to be the standard here. even you have done it before this
message.
3. perhaps it would make more sense to suggest that the mailing list
insert the mailing list address as the 'reply to' address? this is how
many (most?) mailing lists work.
