Well, the problem is that not all projects can just rearrange their
file-layouts over night. But might still want to use a better SCM than
for example CVS. On the other hand, I understand that this isn't trivial
to fix in the current WC code.
But once again, understand that most of the projects requesting this
feature, IMHO, cannot afford a rearrangement of their sources. At least
not initially.
