The top of my list is to handle SourceSafe-like "shared" files. I have a bunch
of files that I commonly use in projects, and I don't want to have to share
*all* of them every time; i.e., I don't want to share the whole directory; just
individual files.

I'd be satisfied if I could put a filename onto svn:externals, if I could get
several files from different places into the same directory. It'd be good if I
could make the target directory '.' also, so I could have something like:

    $ svn propget svn:externals srcs_common
    . svn://localhost/common/trunk/hdrs/header.h
    . svn://localhost/proj1/trunk/src1/file1.c
    . svn://localhost/proj1/trunk/src1/file2.c

Other than this, it's been more of a difference in ways of thinking - I can do
most of what I want, although it's easier to change the way I think. (for
example, individual file timestamps aren't maintained)
