IMHO thats what is required of a vcs like svn. Capturing *all* changes
over time.
btw, Is this possible and easier in CVS?

My suggestion for this case would be the following setup. Pl. give your
inputs...
/repos/index
/repos/music/artist1/album-1
/repos/music/artist1/album-2
/repos/music/artist2/album-1
...
/repos/movies/artist1/album-1
...
where each of the above are repositories ( that could be loaded and
unloaded with normal OS calls ) and the index is the key to retrieve the
repos path required. The data in index could be *trimmed* to be insync
with the other repository sturctures...
