Hi Frank,

I wasn't talking about making and applying patches (which TSVN does
fantastically), I was talking about sharing and storing them (hence my reference
to ftp or database storage).

Eg patches posted to the dev list. Lots of these patches will just be from
people who lack write-access, but isn't there also an important element
(generally in software development) of peer-review that comes from subjecting
your changes to scrutiny *before* commit?
