Hi Duke,

many see Subversion as a meta-file system and from a theoretical point
of view it actually is, therefore mapping/supporting internally as many
special features as real file system have out there is the way to go, imho.

For instance, just listing what comes to mind now:
- hard links/aliased names (*nix/win-ntfs)
- symbolic links/reparse points (*unix/win-ntfs)
- multiple data streams (mac/win-ntfs)
- revision (vms)
- ...
