Okay, this make sense. I just have one question and this isn't meant
as a criticism I'm just trying to understand the behavior. If Adds and
Deletes are considered changes to the containing directory, then what
is the rationale for not updating the version of the directory when an
Add or Delete occurs?

It makes since not to update all of the other files in the directory,
but you know at the commit that the Add/Delete just committed is the
only change (Or at least that's my understanding), because the commit
would not go through without having updated the directory.

Just trying to get a handle on the current FAQs,
Josh
