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
storage
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'
every
month or so. Not something that happens in realtime (and hence break
rev-file
imutability).

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