Well, it would seem useful for the svn client application to handle this
itself at some point in the future. Perhaps a property stored with the
folder containing versioned resources. The property would basically tell
the svn client that it should check to see if there are any files in the
folder (or it's subfolders) which aren't versioned and to automatically
add them if any are found. Of course, one should be allowed to exclude
files or subfolders based on regular expression patterns from this check.

I have a feeling, considering that Bundles are such a good idea, that
other OSs will adopt them for documents as well. (Windows has them for
applications...I suspect bundled documents on Windows will come with
Longhorn.)
