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
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...
