Interesting. No, I hadn't verified; what I saw was the TortoiseSVN window
showing that each file was being sent at the commit. It is good to know that
this isn't then a network traffic or storage size problem, however it is still
a versioning problem for each file. For example when I browse the repository
right now, it says that each library was updated at revision 11, which isn't
really true from a programming point of view.
