Would it be better to partition the revs into seperate directories
(locking-esque) or just roll them together into bigger files? I like the
'rolling' idea because it will increase the average file size - improve
efficiency (that could be an issue when you have 500,000 x 2 rev files!!)

I'd imagine rolling would be a svnadmin function, that would be run 'hot'
month or so. Not something that happens in realtime (and hence break


Umm, separate directories? Don't we have to worry about inode exhaustion
dealing with so many files?
